Chelsea duo slam Serbia team mates after Denmark defeat

BELGRADE (Reuters) – Serbia captain Branislav Ivanovic has blamed his team’s 3-1 home defeat by Denmark in their Euro 2016 Group I qualifier on a lack of commitment among the players and their habit of underestimating the opposition.

“We see ourselves as big stars and always think we are better than others and that’s a very bad attitude,” the Chelsea defender told reporters after Serbia were blown away by the Danes in an empty stadium on Friday.
