Striker won’t return to Stamford Bridge as bench player
Chelsea forward Patrick Bamford has revealed he has no clue where he will be playing his football next season, but has warned Jose Mourinho that he won’t become a bench player.
The young Englishman has spent the last few seasons out on loan from Chelsea, including spells at MK Dons, Derby County and more recently Middlesbrough.
The 21-year-old is hotly tipped for a bright future, whether it be at Stamford Bridge or not, and after being crowned PFA Championship Player of the Year, Bamford spoke out about his future and his chances of playing for Chelsea next season.
When asked where he will be playing next season, he said: “I don’t know. It’s a difficult question to be honest as I don’t know myself.
“Obviously it’s a big thing for me to play for Chelsea especially after I made the move from Forest because a lot of people said I went for the wrong reasons, which wasn’t true at the time.
“I went there because I wanted to play for a top team like Chelsea and, hopefully, I get that chance.”
Bamford has netted 17 goals in 37 Championship appearances so far this season, but with Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Didier Drogba all still at The Bridge, first-team opportunities could still be slim for the England star.
