Ba intends to stay at Chelsea

By 04:23 Fri, 23 May 2014 Comments

Ba's future with Chelsea has been

the subject of speculation after

the Senegal international started

only six games in all competitions

this season.

He was a target for Arsenal last

summer, but important goals

against Paris St Germain, Swansea

and Liverpool in the latter stages

of the season appear to have

secured Ba's future at Chelsea.

"Jose Mourinho has asked me to

stay at Chelsea next season," Ba is

quoted in the Daily Star. "He

assured me that my situation

wouldn't change.

"I see this as my reward from God.

I weighed up the pros and cons,

and think that I will stay put to

see what happens.

"I don't know whether my

situation will improve, but what

with the coach's offer anything

can happen.

"I want to play a lot of matches

and I think that will be the case

for me.

"I was approached by Arsenal last

August. But Mourinho refused to

let me join them, as he said he

didn't want to help a rival team to

get stronger."
