Bertrand Traore

Former Chelsea attacker Bertrand Traore has some pretty damning things to say about his ex-employers, report the Mirror.

Traore spent the previous campaign out on loan with Ajax in the Eredivisie. After a successful campaign at the Amsterdam Arena, it still seemed unlikely that he would get any considerably opportunities in Antonio Conte’s side, and he was subsequently sold to Ligue 1 outfit Lyon.

Upon his arrival in France, Traore spoke of his reasoning to depart Chelsea, the club that have watched him develop since he was just 16-years-old. The Mirror quote Traore, and it doesn’t look as though he enjoyed his time in West London:

“I could have stayed at Chelsea and played a few minutes in every game, fighting every day for a spot, knowing that I’ll never get a spot, I trained at the club, I did everything.”

Very few could argue with the Burkina Faso international’s stern words. Youngsters are continuously deemed not good enough by the club’s hierarchy, despite showing plenty of promise out on loan. It is in Chelsea’s DNA to discard youngsters and invest in the transfer market, Traore is just the latest victim of that.
