International star confirms: I will be a Chelsea player next season


Chelsea forward Pedro has rubbished rumours linking him with a move back to the Spanish Liga as he confirmed that he will be at Stamford Bridge next season.

The 28-year-old struggled to make an impact in Jose Mourinho's squad at the start of the season and was surprised when the Portuguese was sacked in December.

But he says new manager Antonio Conte will help Chelsea return to where they belong.

"I've never experienced anything like that," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"To be in a great club and find yourself at Christmas near the relegation zone ...

"They sacked a very good coach and it was difficult and complicated. But I don't regret leaving Barca. I will continue at Chelsea.

"[Antonio] Conte is a coach that works a lot from a tactical level and demands a lot from his players.

"He will be good for us. We will need to show more hunger and ambition for Chelsea to return to where it deserves."
