Carvalho seeks Blues exit

16 June 2009 07:36
Ricardo Carvalho believes his Chelsea career has come to an end after he accused the club of neglecting him when he was out injured last season. The 31-year-old has recently been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge with Inter Milan expressing an interest. Nerazzurri manager Jose Mourinho is keen to renew acquaintances with the Portuguese defender having worked together at both Porto and Chelsea. Carvalho endured a frustrating campaign last time out thanks to a succession of injuries and the experience has dampened what has been a fruitful five years at the club in terms of trophies. "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 told 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." Carvalho admits that the biggest attraction of joining the Italian champions would be to link up with former boss Mourinho. "Mourinho's a coach who knows me better than anybody," he added. "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."
