Ricardo Carvalho has accused Chelsea of neglecting him when he was injured and says he would welcome a move to Inter Milan. The Portugal defender is wanted by the Serie A champions, where his former boss Jose Mourinho is in charge. The 31-year-old endured a frustrating campaign last season and injuries limited him to 18 appearances as the Blues finished third in the Premier League and won the FA Cup. "I've been at Chelsea for five years, and four of them were very good, but this last season I spent a lot of time out injured," he said in the Daily Star. "This last year I was injured a lot. I wasn't happy and Chelsea can't have been happy with my contribution. "Furthermore, when I was injured the club should have given me more support. They should have helped me more, especially given my past four years at Chelsea. "Their attitude disappointed me a little. I believe my time at Chelsea has come to an end and I'm very happy a big club like Inter are interested in me. "It's a new challenge and I'd like to play in Italy." Of former coach Mourinho, Carvalho added: "Mourinho's a coach who knows me better than anybody. "Together we won big trophies. He's an ambitious coach and a perfectionist. "Let's see if the clubs can reach an agreement. I'd love to work with Jose Mourinho again."
