Before Alex's assist to Shane Long, the Brazilian was probably thinking, "I wonder what my wages will be like at Juventus."
I cannot fathom as to why managers start or give game time to players who are in the process of leaving the club.
Alex was against lapse in his defensive duties when Somen Tchoyi was ready to make it 2-0, only for Long to pass up a guilt-edged opportunity (he literally passed it up), which cost the Baggies in the end.
Alex told Sky Sports Italia, "My agent has been contacted by Juventus. I am 29 years old and it would be a great opportunity. I would love to play in Italy and I hope I can realise this dream."
Alright, thank you for your free kicks, now get out Stamford Bridge.
We need players who are going to put their body on the line, invest their emotions and have the will to make a Chelsea a winning club.
Why start Alex when we have a fit Branislav Ivanović?
