Chelsea transfers: Avram Grant wants Blues trio to stay
Chelsea transfers: Avram Grant calls on the Blues to keep Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and John Terry
Chelsea should keep Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and John Terry beyond the summer, according to ex-Blues boss Avram Grant.
The west London side are yet to tie down the Chelsea legends to new contracts, with the trio set to become free agents in the summer.
I think all of these three can make a contribution, not for all the season, but they can make Chelsea better
Grant relied heavily on the England stars as the Israeli led Chelsea to the Champions League final in 2008, losing to Manchester United on penalties in Moscow.
And the former Chelsea manager believes they could still play a key role for Jose Mourinho next season despite reaching the twilight of their career.
“Chelsea have a good squad for next season,” Grant told Sky Sports News.
“If you can use those players Lampard, Terry and Cole, sometimes not even all of the season because of their age, but if you can use them it would be good.
“Especially if you want to buy and I know that Chelsea want to buy a young talented player, so the balance needs to be with an experienced player.
“I don’t need to make a decision but I think all of these three can make a contribution, not for all the season, but they can make Chelsea better.”
