The Daily Mail, in a Neil Ashton “Sportsmail Exclusive”, claims that Chelsea full back Wayne Bridge will leave the club if he isn’t picked for next week’s Carling Cup Final against Tottenham. Ashton writes:
“Bridge, 27, is one of the quieter members of the Chelsea squad but Stamford Bridge sources disclosed that the former Southampton player was furious with his omission from the squad last Sunday.
“Bridge is still disappointed that Liverpool were not encouraged to follow up their interest in signing him during the January transfer window and he believes his future lies elsewhere.
“Grant called his players together during training on Monday to tell them that they could leave if they were not happy at the club and Bridge believes that was the green light for him to quit.”
So will Avram Grant have the guts to drop Wayne Bridge with the full knowledge that it could lead to him leaving the club? Or is having TWO England international left-backs at one football club overdoing it a bit, even for billionaire plaything Chelsea?
