Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has been one of the biggest let-downs for the club during this season. However, despite his poor form, the club awarded him a contract extension for one year, according to the BBC.
The Serbian will earn £120,000-a-week with the Blues, not too bad for the 31-year-old defender. However, the news hasn’t gone down too well with the fans.
Had a bad dream that Ivanovic extended his Chelsea contract

If Ivanovic is getting a new Chelsea contract, then John Terry might think he also deserves one.

Bane Ivanovic set to extend his contract – probably just thrilled Chelsea would offer it after the performances he’s put in this year.

Having our worst season in years, sacked our manger… Squad is a mess… How do we fix it? Give Ivanovic a new contract. Ok then.

I support a club that sold Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku, but gave Oscar, Ramires and Branislav Ivanovic new deals.

How on earth has Branislav Ivanovic got a new contract at #Chelsea – If he was a horse he would have been sent to the glue factory by now…
