Andreas Christensen has been one of the great talents in the Premier League this season.
Not many would have thought the 21-year-old would be so important for Chelsea this season. When speaking to Sky Sports, Christensen described his loan to Borussia Monchengladbach as ‘the two biggest years of my career’.
The Dane helped his country to World Cup qualification, beating Ireland 5-1 on Tuesday. It’s fair to say that things are going perfectly for the centre-back so far. The objective for Christensen was to be a Chelsea player during his time in the Bundesliga, as Sky Sports reports.
Christensen is quoted by Sky Sports saying:
“Both for the club and for me personally, the plan was always to come back into the first team.”
Chelsea loanees must follow the example set by Christensen
It’s crazy to think that the club have 34 players out on loan.
Players like Lucas Piazon, Nathan and Todd Kane have been part of the system for years and are unlikely to have a future at Stamford Bridge.
Whilst Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham are two players that could well be first team regulars, even for next season.
Our loan policy has always been talked in a negative light as it’s helped the club off the pitch rather than on it through financial gain.
Loftus-Cheek and Abraham must forget about previous outcasts and use Christensen as a guide to play in front of the Chelsea faithful on a constant basis.
