He said: "We want to stay in the race and Liverpool and Man City do everything to make their squads bigger and they set the standard so high. This is the challenge in which we compete.

"We have at the moment a huge disadvantage - that's not decisive yet. There is no need to make excuses now, it is just the situation we are in and we have to be as quick as possible. Right now, of course, it is unsatisfying because our hands are tied and we cannot act as we want."

The German confirmed that he will delay his holiday plans in order to start working on the incoming transfers in the summer, with scouting done on the players already.

Jules Koude and Josko Gvardiol have been the most heavily linked players with a Stamford Bridge switch this summer.
