AS Monaco signing Ricardo Carvalho has paid tribute to former Chelsea teammate Paulo Ferreira.

Ferreira has been released from Chelsea this month.

Carvalho told "He always did what the coach asked him, he doesn't want a problem with anyone, he only wants to have good relations with people.

"Of course, he chose to stay for a long time and in the last few years he didn't play so much but was always there to help and do a good job. I don't know if he will continue playing or not, he loves his family life in London, so he may decide to finish and stay in the area. I wish him good luck with whatever he chooses."
