Mancienne: In the limelight
Michael Mancienne has voiced his determination to one day break into the Chelsea first team.
Mancienne, who is currently on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers, has been named in Fabio Capello's 23-man England squad to face Germany on Wednesday.
The 20-year-old has made just three Championship starts for Wolves this season and was handed the surprise call-up ahead of a number of Premier League defenders.
Mancienne has yet to feature for his parent club Chelsea but is determined to return to Stamford Bridge in the future and emerge as a regular.
He said in The Sun: "Long-term I would like to go back there, because I have been with the club since I was a kid.
"I am at Wolves until the end of December and I don't know if the loan will be extended."
He added: "I want to make headlines because that shows I'm doing well.
"To go from Chelsea reserves to the top of the Championship with Wolves and to England is a massive thrill.
"I am thriving on the pressure playing first-team football brings and this is only inspiring me to work harder because these are just the first steps."
