No seven year itch for Chelsea defender

Published Add your comment

Chelsea defender Paulo Ferreira is hopeful he can remain at Stamford Bridge for the rest of his career.

The 32-year-old followed Jose Mourinho from Porto to Chelsea seven years ago and has played a part in three Barclays Premier League title wins, as well as a trio of FA Cup triumphs.

And, despite finding himself on the peripheries and Stamford Bridge these days, the Portuguese is happy to continue playing for the Blues for many years to come.

"I have been seven years here at Chelsea and it is the club where I have spent most time," he said.


"My family are happy here, so let's see if I can finish playing here as well."

Ferreira does, however, have plans to return to Portugal once his playing days are over with the intention of imparting his wisdom onto the next generation of footballers.

"I have in my mind to open an academy back home in my village," he added. "I want to be involved in helping kids play football and to teach them what I have learned."
