Chelsea Bridge Was Never Going To Open For Wayne

Chelsea Bridge Was Never Going To Open For Wayne

Google language translator


Manchester City's new signing Wayne Bridge has admitted he quit Chelsea because he was frustrated with his lack of first-team opportunities.

Bridge, who played with Mark Hughes early in his Southampton career, said he could not see a future at Stamford Bridge.

'I thought I was going to get a lot more games than what I had been doing. It just was not happening and it was probably the most frustrated I have been.'

'There was a time when I had a string of games in the first team, and then Ashley Cole came straight back in.'

'Maybe he [the Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari] thinks Ashley Cole is a better left-back than me - that is the way football goes.'


Whatever the reason, Bridge had to accept he needed to move.

'No matter how well I played, I was never going to establish myself there,' he added.

'I spoke to Scolari but I'll leave that between me and him - and I left on a good note.'

'Everyone was happy when an offer from Manchester City was put on the table, and for me it is a great opportunity to start playing week in week out.'

I think he has a lot to prove to himself as well as Chelski so I have good feelings about this signing

He is a good signing for u class but to be honest A. Cole is better as a whole that's why he was picked regularly ahead of Bridge.

He is better than Cole and will be the England regular LB soon.

He seems a decent bloke. I am sure we will get the best out of him as has happened with SWP.

I actually agree with you Buz Lightyear. I didn't like how he was treated actually - particularly in the previous two seasons when I felt he played better and far more consistent than Cole whenever Cole was out for injury or suspension but Wayne was dropped instantly when Ashley was available. And CoxintheBox - grow up... He can't sit on the bench for the best years of his career, much as I'd have liked him to stay at Chelsea.
