Ryan Bertrand: Still has a future at Chelsea, according to Jose Mourinho

Bertrand joined Villa on loan during the January transfer window and the left-back has impressed during his short time at Villa Park.

Reports have suggested that Villa boss Paul Lambert is keen to make the move permanent, but Mourinho has cooled talk of Bertrand leaving Chelsea on a full-time basis, suggesting the 24-year-old could have a future at Stamford Bridge.

"He has a future at Chelsea," said Mourinho. "A future and a past. Of course he has a future.

"The decision to let him go to Villa was good because he's playing and what he needed was to play every game.

"But maybe next season he is with us."

Villa will be unable to call upon Bertrand this weekend as he is ineligible to face his parent club Chelsea, in a game which is live on Sky Sports 1HD on Saturday at 5.30pm.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
