Crespo vows to stay with Chelsea
Hernan Crespo
Argentine striker Hernan Crespo has denied claims he is unsettled at Chelsea as well as reports he could leave in the January transfer window.

Crespo, 30, did not feature in the Blues squad against Real Betis and Manchester United, leading to rumours of a row with boss Jose Mourinho.

But he said: "I will stay. When I came back three months ago, I signed a new contract for one more year.

"So why do I need to change something after three months?"

Crespo helped AC Milan to the Champions League final last season during a loan spell with the Italian club.

He seemed keen to complete a permanent move to the Serie A before returning to Stamford Bridge.

Crespo added: "I have shown that when I have an opportunity to do something in Chelsea, I'm ready to play.

"But the season is long. If I don't have a lot of minutes now, I don't have a problem.

"Normally I need to play more and more, but I don't have problems with anybody."
