Udinese striker plays down the prospect of returning to Chelsea

Stipe Perica

Udinese forward Stipe Perica has played down the prospect of returning to Chelsea.

Perica was sold by Blues to the Seria A club last summer after an 18-month loan.

The Croatian was asked if he thinks of returning to the London club in the future, but he accepts the prospect is unlikely.

“Chelsea are a great club, but now I am in Udine and I only think about doing well with the black and white jersey,” he told TMW.

“In Italy it is more difficult to break through for a young striker. The defences will close you down better and mark you well,” he added.
