Following their victory over Man City, David Luiz believes Chelsea can do an astonishing league and European double, according to the Express online.
The £25m defender has scored two goals for his new club, both against Manchester clubs, which has re-directed his club’s flailing pursuit of defending their Premier League crown.
“I want to win the Premier League and the Champions League – even though I can’t play in it (he is cup tied) I want to win everything. And we can still do it.”
The Blues sit nine points behind their rivals at the top of the table but have a game in hand, and still have to visit Old Trafford.
Eriksen warned against Blues move.
The father of Danish starlet Christian Eriksen has warned top teenage talent not to join Chelsea, according to Mail Online.
The Ajax wonderkid became one of the hottest prospects in football after an inspired display for his country against England last month, which has consequently seen him linked with a host of top European clubs, including Chelsea.
His father said how happy he was his son did not move to west London, after as a 15-year-old he had trials at Stamford Bridge: “Chelsea thought he (Eriksen) was too weak and not great, the English mentality does not work.” He continued.
“If there is one player from the youth team that goes to the first team they are happy. They are indifferent to all the rest.”
Terry gets Rio backing.
Rio Ferdinand called Chelsea captain John Terry to wish him good luck after Fabio Capello gave Terry the England captaincy back, according to ESPN online.
The Man Utd defender is angry with the England manager, but he wanted to tell Terry there is no ill feeling towards him, and that he could not ‘get his head around’ Capello’s refusal to discuss it with him personally.
A source close to Ferdinand commented: “Rio felt it was only right he gave John a call and talked things over and he wished John all the best for Saturday.” He continued. “John and Rio go back years and there is a mutual respect. Maybe Capello could learn a bit from them.”
Ferdinand, who has never played in a Euro finals, said this will not effect him playing for his country and is not prepared to let this bust-up with Capello affect his chances of appearing at the 2012 tournament.
