Chelsea planning move away from the Bridge
LONDON, Nov 24 (Reuters) - English champions Chelsea are drawing up plans to leave Stamford Bridge in a bid to rival Manchester United and become the biggest club in the world, chief executive Peter Kenyon said.
'By 2014 we want to be internationally recognised as the No.1 club,' Kenyon was quoted as saying by British newspapers on Friday.
'I think it's pretty clear we can't get to where we want to here. We have said we would like the stadium to be bigger, but that's not going to be at the expense of moving to Brussels or Milton Keynes.'
Before Sunday's clash at Premier League leaders United, Kenyon also said manager Jose Mourinho was a key part of the club's long-term plans and quashed any talk of him leaving. Mourinho said at the end of last season that he had considered quitting.
