Brought in 2008 by Scolari, Over the past one year, Jose Bosingwa has slowly become a liability for Chelsea. Whether it is defending effectively or crossing in well, he hasn't done much to support his cause.
Apart from a brilliant vollyed goal, this season has been a bad one for him, and Chelsea. With Ashley Cole on the left, and John Terry in the middle going strong , Bosingwa has become the weak link in the defence and in my opinion should be on his way out this summer. We need a reliable, a bit more defense minded Right back, since we already have a very attacking player in Daniel Sturridge on the Right. And at the age of 29, I do not think he is going to improve much.
André Villas-Boas played him a lot (Maybe the Portuguese connection ?) and Roberto Di Matteo is playing him because he has no other option than Paulo Ferreira, who in my opinion was better than Bosingwa against Benifca. But Paulo is more of a squad player now with his peak days behind him.
So, I feel that Bosingwa should be on the way out and we should get a more defensive right back for the next season.
But then again, this is my opinion, what do you guys feel ?
