“But when I think about Chelsea I see slick play, I see inter-changing, I see through ball.
“I don’t see a ton of crosses, I do see crosses, (Eden) Hazard is a quality player, Willian, these players will put crosses in.
“So it didn’t seem the perfect fit for me but saying that, they would certainly have to adjust slightly to get the best out of Carroll.
“Diego Costa, a former Chelsea player, he was a big, physical player.
“He knows that was key to them winning the Premier League, so he’s probably thinking ‘we need someone who can hold that ball up, so when it goes wide we can dominate’.
“So that is perhaps his thinking.”
