Chelsea goalkeeper talks about his future, might leave
AC Milan goalkeeper Marco Amelia was signed by Chelsea on a free transfer in October 2015 on a short-term deal after Thibaut Courtois was injured.
The Italian goalie hadn’t played since being released by Milan in 2014 itself.
The 33 year old former Milan and Italy goalkeeper was signed as a result of a knee injury to Thibaut Courtois, which ruled him out till December, leaving
the squad with only one experienced player in Asmir Begovic at that time.
Marco had signed the contract until the end of the season and his agent too celebrated the Chelsea signing with the player.
The goalie was lucky to be called to Stamford Bridge after he sent a personal message to Mourinho’s staff asking if they required his services.
After training with the goalie, Chelsea signed the contract with the player and it was done to have a reliable back-up for the team in-case the other young
goalkeepers did not live up to the manager’s expectations.
Mourinho used 21 year old Jamal Blackman ahead of Amelia as his back up to Asmir and with regular first-choice Courtois injured, Amelia had to wait on
the bench to get some chances back last year.
The Italian goalkeeper now has the choice to renew his contract and spoke to SportItalia about his future.
“Here are liked and I’m trying to make my contribution in the dressing room.
I do not know what will happen because I have an option to renew the contract.
We will see whether to renew or choose another path. For me it is a great experience, I learned to live a different kind of football.
It will be very useful for my future and what I want to do after the end of his career as a player. ”
Despite not getting many chances at Stamford Bridge, the player is still eager to stay at Chelsea and his words suggest that he enjoyed experiencing a
different environment in England.
