Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has reassured England's forgotten men Scott Parker and Glen Johnson that they will have a valuable role to play in this season's four-pronged bid for trophies.

Both Parker and Johnson have lost their places in the England squad since finding themselves pushed to the fringes of Chelsea's first-team squad.

With the quality in depth of Chelsea's squad meaning they must bide their time before any opportunities arise, both players would be forgiven for becoming frustrated.

Mourinho has stressed that he will not need to rotate his squad until his players tire during the winter, and that means both Parker and Johnson can expect to be kept waiting for their chance to impress.

However, they would seem sure to play a role later in the campaign, with Chelsea in the hunt for FA Cup, Carling Cup, Champions League and Premiership.

its going to be hard for them to get in, paulo ferrieria the right back is going to be first choice, him and mourinho have been together for a few seasons. although if he gets injured. maybe johnson could feature but i noticed gallas can play at right back.

scott parker has got a real hard challenge to, to get into midfield. i cant see it happening to be honest and i think he might have to leave

Glen Johnson was mad to go to Chelsea, but the again West Ham couldn't turn down that sort of money. They should at least loan him out to gain experience as he only played about 14 games at West Ham and only a few at Chelsea. They will keep saying he will get a chance but when? One year, two years?

Yeah they did talk about that but i think they was short in that position and played him at the begining of the season.

well about parker, former boss ranieri says its best he leaves in order to secure first team football, even though i dont think ranieri did the best with him as he had him playing wide right sometimes


Former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri believes Scott Parker should leave The Blues to secure regular first-team action.

It was Ranieri who took Parker to Stamford Bridge from Charlton in a £10 million deal last January.

The midfielder was a regular under the Italian tactician, but has slipped out of the first-team picture under Jose Mourinho.

It seems Mourinho favors certain players and HE MUST play the players he signed otherwise he would look stupid for signing them. Parker should leave for sure and he would most prob get back in the England squad....

Yeah Parker has got a few caps already and he didn't do too bad at all for England...

if he wants to enhance his chances to get back in, and since he has played, if he hits form somewhere he should get in

i think he'l leave at some stage,

a update on parker


Chelsea's out of favour midfielder Scott Parker has revealed he will consider his Stamford Bridge future should he remain on the sidelines.

The £10 million capture from Charlton enjoyed a successful spell under manager Claudio Ranieri last term but has failed to land a chance under new boss Jose Mourinho.

there is talk about huth going, but when you think about it, they are short on defenders and i think they need a right winger
