Ruben Loftus-Cheek has told Chelsea that he wants to emulate the great John Terry, as he looks all set to commit his future to the club.
Loftus-Cheek has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this season as Maurizio Sarri has failed to give him the kind of Premier League game time that he needed and wanted, and that has led to a lot of transfer speculation linking Loftus-Cheek with a summer move to either Liverpool or Arsenal.
But after reports suggested we are to open talks with the midfielder, he has dropped a massive hint that he is all set to stay by admitting that he would like to emulate great Terry here.
When asked whether he wishes to emulate Terry at Chelsea by ESPNFC, Loftus-Cheek said: ‘Yeah definitely, but I think that comes with a lot of experience. I don’t think Chelsea can ever replace John [Terry]. He was the best leader I’ve seen, not just on the pitch but off it.
‘He was always organising and sorting stuff out to make it easier for us. On the pitch he was very vocal and was that character you have at the back who would organise and make you feel safe.
‘I’ve observed that and felt that feeling, and that’s something that comes with experience. The more experience I get, then hopefully I can be that person.’
Meanwhile,Wayne Bridge has claimed that he is shocked to see that Maurizio Sarri is still boss at Stamford Bridge.
There has been a lot of criticism in regards to the style of play of Sarri, with many fans chanting ‘F*** Sarriball’ on many occasions this season, despite the fact that he has us back inside the top four and into two finals this season.
“Some say it’s been successful but it’s been very up and down,” Bridge told Sky Sports News.
“They’ve been very inconsistent and consistency is what you want of a big team. That’s what’s going to win you the Premier League.
“I don’t really know where he [Sarri] stands. I’m very surprised that he’s still there.
“They are third [in the Premier League] and they are in a final [the Europa League] but as an ex-player and a Chelsea fan, they would like to see them higher up in the table.
“I know it’s third but they want to see them competing [for the title].”
