"We have to try to win every game," the Italian coach said. "There'll be an international break and when the players come back, I'd like to see the same spirit and attitude."
The heat is on, after statement by Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay, who has told BBC Five that the club will judge the coach and other people on the team "at the end of May."
