Chelsea's Ivanovic: I can do Messi job

Recommended Posts

Branislav Ivanovic says he's ready to play at left-back for Chelsea against Barcelona's Lionel Messi next week.

Ivanovic could be handed the job in the Champions League semi with Ashley Cole suspended and told chelseafc.com: "I played there one time at Lokomotiv Moscow, but just one time.

"I know the situation, and I don't know if the coach will decide this, but I am here."

Wtf...He is a genuine RB.

Id play someone who has been playing recently rather than throwing someone who has been on bench for a month, to face Messi. In this case Ivanovic. Plus at setpieces Ivanovic can be a threat.

No Belleti please. He couldnt defend well against a Mid Table team in the premier league..Messi will rip him apart.

Ivanovic is the only choice in reality. I can't think of another player i would play there. Messi is a quality player, but we need to stop thinking of him as some sort of god! He will not enjoy the run of the park against us. And we will give them something to worry about aswell.

For me the back 4 against Barca should be Bosingwa, Carvalho, Terry, Ivanovic.

Messi vs Mancienne..... This could make his Chelsea career, still saying that Boulahrouz played there against ronaldinho superbly and he still turned out shit so you never know :lol:

Ivanovic is my choice for the LB postion. Messi like's to cut inside, Andy Gray was talking about this last night so it maybe a good thing having a right footed player at left back anyways.

No point putting Essien there we then lose the drive we get from Essien in midfield.
