Speaking ahead of Chelsea's Champions Leauge clash against Steaua Bucuresti tomorrow, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that defender Ashley Cole will get offered a new contract at Stamford Bridge. The Portuguese manager also confirmed that Cole is back in the team and will start tomorrow's match.


"Naturally he will get his contract because he's a valuable player for us," Mourinho said.

"Even if you are not playing every game and you are not a first-choice player, like he was always, I don't think sometimes it means that you are not well, you are not deserving of a new contract.
