Inter Milan striker Crespo: I won’t return to Chelsea

Crespo said: “I know there is a loan agreement between Chelsea and Inter, but sooner or later there will be a solution. Then I will be able to completely cut the ties with Chelsea and continue my career in Italy.

“Negotiations are open and Chelsea know my intention is to stay at Inter.

“My agent is working hard on the subject in London, but I have not spoken with Mourinho since summer.

“I have been told about Mourinho’s words about my possible return – and I don’t understand them.

“Last year he did not use me as much as he needed to, despite me giving everything in training and in games and scoring goals. Now why would I return, to be on the bench?”
