Wilkins admits big Chelsea changes expected

Ray Wilkins accepts there are likely to be big changes at Chelsea.

It has been reported Roman Abramovich will now embark on a major overhaul of the playing staff. Wilkins accepted changes were likely this summer, but said that was a normal occurrence at any big club.

He told BBC Radio: "Seasons pass on, people are brought in and people leave the club and that's the way football is.

"We're no different to any other football club. We want to improve, we want to go forward and if it means a few players go along the way and a few come in that is just the way football is run.

"Whenever a top-quality player becomes available, a top club like ours will always be involved in the process."
