He told the Scottish Sun: "My dream would always to be to go to Chelsea one day, even as an assistant.

''My heart is at Chelsea, 100 per cent. It is the team I love. After Steaua Bucharest, my first team, Stamford Bridge is my second home and I always follow Chelsea's results.

"My daughter was born when I played there and we called her Chelsea. She is 11 now.

"Living in London was the happiest time of my life. Our family loved it and professionally, it was the best."

The ex-Romanian international right-back added: "My friends Roberto di Matteo and Gianfranco Zola are now managers at West Brom and West Ham. Those are big clubs.

"If someone in England gave me a chance, I am sure that they would not be disappointed."
