If you look closely at his career, he's either been the leader of the team or was utterly ineffective.

I read an article on the romanian site prosport, that says this: a group of Chelsea players went to Kenyon and asked him to sell Mutu next season, saying he is arrogant, and egotistic.

If this is true, I feel he has a very slim chance to ever becoming the leader of Chelsea and he should pack up and go.

At this point I think two scenarios are possible.

1. Ranieri plays him against Monaco, he has a maginficent game and Chelsea go through on his back, thus reviving his chance of becoming the leader of the team.

2 He does not play, or plays badly against Monaco, in which case he should go and never look back. To Juve, I heard roumours about it, and they are rebuilding their team. Or Hagi could get him at Gala and try to restore Gala to it's former glory. I just hope Abra does not have a Moratti type of greed regarding strikers. A loan would be ideal in this case.

Actually there is a third option, he could stay another year at Chelsea, but with another coach.

Mutu should leave Chelsea? Yeah - just like henry should of left arsenal when he played crap in his first season. Give the guy a chance.

Mutu: I've not fallen out with team-mates

28 April 2004

Adrian Mutu today poured scorn on reports he is set to be forced out of Chelsea.

It was claimed yesterday that several of the Romanian's team-mates were unhappy with his surly attitude but he is one of the most popular players at Stamford Bridge. The striker counts Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Mario Melchiot and John Terry as close friends and has been invited to holiday with Marcel Desailly this summer.

Mutu's main problem is shaking off a niggling knee injury but he is confident his team-mates have not turned on him.

Speaking from Bucharest, where Romania play Germany in a friendly international tonight, Mutu said: "I can't believe the players went to [chief executive] Peter Kenyon to say something about me. I have many friends at Chelsea and am very sociable. It's normal when you're injured to be a little bit upset but it's nothing to do with them, it's my own problem.

"I feel good and Chelsea are doing very well. We're second in the league and in the semi-finals of the Champions League and cannot do much more. I'm very happy at Chelsea but am not in the best condition. I'll try to recover as quickly as possible."

Mutu burst on to the Premiership scene in scintillating fashion after signing from Parma for £15.8million last summer, scoring four goals in his first three games for Chelsea. But his form has dipped in recent months, with the 25-year-old scoring only one goal in his last 17 Premiership games.

But Mutu believes his next run of goals is not far away. He said: "I'm very confident I will be scoring soon because I still know football. I will show everyone my talent.

"I'm in a bad period but the supporters understand me and I want to thank them for always staying next to me. They give me a hand and help me. I'm very happy and want to continue with Chelsea.

"I'm in bad condition at the moment but every time I go on the pitch I try my best, I do my duty and help my team."

Mutu has withdrawn himself from tonight's match in a bid to be fit for Chelsea's Champions League semi-final second-leg against Monaco next week.

He added: "I won't play against Germany and I am resting my knee. I hope to be fit to play against Monaco but it all depends on the manager if he picks me."

He says he can't believe it, but that doesn't mean it's not true ...

I hope it's not.

I'd like to know who these players are....
They are probably mediocre players upset that they do not get enough playing time...

I'd happily take him and some money and send Owen to Chelski.

Cisse+Mutu=greatness

yea players went to Peter Kenyan to complain about him.... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
You'd have to wonder about teamates doing this to eachother...I mean if Mutu had done something outrageous I understand, but just because the guy is not in a good mood in the change room, you can't accuse him of being anti-social and detrimental to the entire club....He is simply in a bad mood and recovering from an injury (and bad form) so of course he is a little pissed.....


GO BLUES!!!!!!!

I didn't hear no firm denials.
Just Mutu saying he doesn't think it's possible.

He should join Milan. They are in need of a support striker to play alongside Sheva, and Mutu would be great. Juventus has Miccoli and DP, Inter is always a mess, Lazio and Parma do not have enough money.

Otherwise, he should stay in Chelsea and try his best next season. Hopefully without injuries he'll do better.

I think it's hard to do worse. With another coach OR a changed team I think he'll improve just because of the new teammates.

So far he didn't had a lot of connection with his teammates, except Hasselbaink.

I think Gronkjaer and Geremi will be sold.

Mutu back to Italy? (AFP)
05/05/2004. According to Italian media, Chelsea and Juventus are very close in agreeing on a deal that would see Pavel Nedved and Adrian Mutu exchanging shirts next season.

This deal could also include David Trezeguet with the London based club offering an extra 25 million Euros for the French striker services.

In the coming days, both clubs are expected to meet to discuss these transfers.

serie A teams would be looking for him. whether its juve, inter or milan who is to know. many BS rumours are going around the sites etc...so its hard to distinguish if any of these teams really want him.

he did criticise serie A after joining chelsea. so it would be interesting to see if he does return and what the media make of it.

I dont even think he will leave. Abro likes him and unless there is a better option coming in Mutu will stay for another chance. He was playing well at one point remember? This will depend on who will be the manager of course.

Andrea Pretti said he's waiting for the next coach (Mourinho likely) to decide his future ..

Also he said all these roumours with Juve are false and that the Chelsea management never said that they intend to sell him.
