Lisbon:

Chelsea's Portuguese midfielder Deco says he is unhappy at the London club and wants to leave, media reports said on Thursday.

The Brazilian-born playmaker moved to Chelsea last year from Barcelona, but struggled to make an impact under Luiz Felipe Scolari and was then left out entirely by Guus Hiddink.

"I did not like the experience at Chelsea. I want to find another solution and another challenge," the 31-year-old was quoted as saying during a sports tournament at Matosinhos in northern Portugal.

Last month, Deco admitted he was in talks with Inter Milan about a possible move to the north Italian club coached by former Porto boss Jose Mourinho.

However the Portugal international declined to say if there had been any developments. "I am aware there is some interest but I can't say any more about it," he told reporters at the tournament.

"It would be great to work with Mourinho," he conceded, adding he would be delighted to resume collaboration with the manager who steered FC Porto to win the UEFA Cup in 2003 and the Champions League in 2004.
