Crespo plays down departure talk
Hernan Crespo
Chelsea's Argentine striker Hernan Crespo has distanced himself from claims he is unhappy in England.

Crespo, 30, has been previously quoted as saying he misses Italy, where he has spent much of his career.

Crespo told the Chelsea website: "I don't like this speculation. I think I'm a professional and I play with my heart at Chelsea.

"In June I don't know what will happen as in the last four years I've always changed club. I want to stay here."

Crespo joined Chelsea for 16m from Inter Milan three years ago but was unhappy at Stamford Bridge and returned to Serie A to play on loan for AC Milan.

Complaining about my current situation at Chelsea is the last thing on my mind
Hernan Crespo
He spent last season on loan at AC Milan, where he was a revelation and scored two goals in the Champions League final defeat against Liverpool.

He was brought back to London in the summer and has scored 10 goals this season.

He added: "Complaining about my current situation at Chelsea is the last thing on my mind. In fact, it's quite the opposite.

"My relationship with coach Jose Mourinho is very good and I understand that it's impossible to play every game, so from a working point of view, there is no issue.

"The team is in very good shape, there is a sense of strength about us and we are proud of that."
