Chelsea “always said” player who left the club would be great but still let him go

Chelsea apparently knew that one player they let go would be a great player, yet they still sold him.

Sounds puzzling, right?

Well, it seems like the ones who rated Dominic Solanke at Chelsea, were not the ones with the power or the decision makers at the club and if they were, they would have kept him.

EXCLUSIVE! No surprise if Pochettino is given next season still, Amorim NOT under consideration, Interest in Ferguson, Osimhen, Sesko, & Nusa but Gyokeres NOT on agenda, Outgoings, PSR, Stadium plans……

The claims have come from Rio Ferdinand, who has been raving about the now Bournemouth striker Solanke. The 26-year-old has been proving his worth in the last couple of seasons and showing what he is about.

But Chelsea didn’t stick with him and ended up letting him go.

Ferdinand has said though, that he doesn’t think anyone at Chelsea will be surprised by the success Solanke is now having at Bournemouth.

When discussing Solanke on FIVE’s YouTube channel, Ferdinand said: “He’s always been talked about as great potential. Jody Morris and Joe Edwards used to be the youth team managers at Chelsea. Speaking to them both, potentially, he looked to be better than Tammy Abraham. Tammy has gone on and flown. Solanke is now having his second wind.

“I don’t think there’s any surprises at Chelsea from the people that were there seeing what he’s doing. They always said they had it in him. He broke the records as a kid scoring goals for Chelsea.”

With Chelsea now seemingly desperate for a top class striker at the club, you do wonder if there are any regrets, although it’s likely the ones who sold him are no longer there anyway!

  1. No, no regrets, lol!

    Sorry but Solanke is just not a world class player, and that’s the standard any big club that aims to win the Premier League and compete year in and year out for the Champions League needs to set for its player development and acquisition. He’s scored a grand total of 26 Premier League goals across more than 125 matches. So, at barely a goal every five matches it’s safe to say we made the right decision in selling him on.
