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.'
