Chelsea coach Rodgers: Wolves move good for Mancienne

Chelsea reserves coach Brendan Rodgers says a loan move to Wolves will be good for defender Michael Mancienne.

"For us, it was trying to position him at the highest level we could. He has been outstanding since he has been back from QPR, and unfortunate not to get a run out in the first team. His performances with England Under 21s recently showed he was their best player over two games,' he told chelsefc.com.

"We offer everything here in terms of talent and facilities but Michael needs to take that opportunity to play at a good level, the highest we can get him to, because rules mean he can't go on loan to a Premier League club at the moment, was to the Championship.

"So then, we need to consider the right club at the right end of the table. For us that is a club that tries to play football, it's no good sending him to a club where they kick from one end to the other, because when he comes back here he doesn't play that way, and so sending him to Wolves is a good move."
