Chelsea’s Sam Kerr has expressed a desire to stay at the club for ‘as long as I can’ in an interview with BBC Sport.
Kerr is one of the best women footballers in the world at this moment in time. She has just a single year left on her contract at Chelsea – if she were to depart on a free transfer, it would be a massive blow to the Blues. Thankfully, fans of Chelsea need not fret, as she seems to be very keen to remain at the club.
Kerr also expressed her admiration for Chelsea manager Emma Hayes. In the interview with BBC Radio London, Kerr said: “I have a special relationship with Emma, she gets the best out of me as you can tell in the last two years – if you’re listening, Emma, sign me up.”
It has been a relatively fruitful season in the WSL for Chelsea so far. Despite a disappointing defeat against Arsenal in the FA WSL Cup final, they are currently top of the WSL table with a game in hand over their title-chasing rivals.
On Chelsea’s season, Kerr said: “It’s weird because it’s heating up, it’s getting tight, but I don’t think we’ve ever had a five-point lead.
“So, it’s weird. It feels like the hardest, the toughest ‘it’s taken the most out of us’ season, but last season and the year before it was two points and it was one point, so I’m ready for a twist.
“I’m ready for something to go down where it gets even tighter because it feels like there’s pressure on every game.”
