Chelsea's Ivanovic rejects claims of false agent
Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has rejected comments attributed to a figure claiming to represent the Serbia defender, insisting the individual does not speak for him and casting doubt on his future at Stamford Bridge in the process, the Daily Mirror has reported.
It was claimed earlier in the week that Vlado Boroza was Ivanovic’s agent, with Boroza insisting his supposed-client was happy at Chelsea despite interest from Napoli and Real Madrid. But Ivanovic has responded by rubbishing the suggestion Boroza is his agent and refused to be drawn on his future at Chelsea.
Ivanovic said in a statement: “I would like to put on record that [Boroza] is not my agent and does not have the right to tell the press anything on my behalf. With regards to speculation about my future, we will see what happens. As it stands today, I am a proud Chelsea player.”
Boroza had claimed that Ivanovic was not looking to leave Chelsea, the club he joined in January 2008. But Ivanovic would not comment specifically about his intentions, saying only that he was keen to enjoy a holiday after a long season in which Chelsea won the FA Cup, the Champions League and Ivanovic captained his country in some pre-Euro 2012 friendlies, although Serbia are not competing in Poland and Ukraine.
