sinclairThe future for Scott Sinclair is uncertain. The Chelsea winger, now 21 years old, failed to really impress during his season-long loan last season at Wigan Athletic. One thing is for sure, however, he is fully backing his brother, Martin, to represent Great Britain at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London.

Martin is competing this week as a member of the Great Britain football team at the BT Paralympic World Cup. The team, a "7-a-side cerebral palsy football team, an ambitious group aiming for the medal placings at the Games in two years' time," open Wednesday at the United States.

"He could go all the way," Sinclair said in the Telegraph. "I think he's got the ability and he's good enough, he wouldn't be here otherwise."

Martin is part of the Plymouth Argyle Disability team, which has won multiple Premier League titles. He has one England cap.

"It's a great experience, not only for me but for the rest of the 12 players in the squad," Martin said. "It'll be a great occasion and I'm glad that it's in Manchester, with the fans."

What fantastic stuff. Great to see Scott supporting his brother in his dream of playing at the highest level. Congratulation to them both. We here at Chelsea Offside  wish Martin all the best this week.
