Chelsea Set To Lose Their Longest Serving Player: Are They In Need Of Revamping Their System?

Michael Emanelo, upon his resignation, said that he was proud of Chelsea’s loan system and went on to add that Andreas Christensen was proof that the system worked wonders. He went on to add that Jake Clarke-Salter and Fikayo Tomori will soon follow in on the footsteps of the young Dan.

This was his statement. “Christensen will be a superb player.  I see on a regular basis that Jake Clarke-Salter and Fikayo Tomori are going to be outstanding players. They are young and I don’t know if they decide to get fat. There’s nothing I can do about that. If they continue the way that they are, they will make it because they have great talent, there’s no doubt about that.”

“There is a coordinated effort from everybody to want to make this happen. Not just because it feels good, and it is nice to have a backbone the fans can relate to and support. But with the investment we are making and where we think the game is going and the competition that we have, you can’t just buy your way out of trouble all the time”.

While Christensen’s development testifies Emanelo’s comment, his statement is far from complete.Chelsea have produced excellent youth products over the last few years. These kids have won every major trophy at the youth level. They have then been loaned out for further development.

After that things go horribly wrong. Christensen is probably the only second player after John Terry to rise through the club ranks and the only one in Emanelo’s ten-year tenure at the club.

Chelsea have lost fine young products in the process, many they have gone on to rue. It now seems that the Blues could be on their way to regret losing out on yet another player, this time Matej Delac.

Delac is Chelsea’s longest-serving player in the current set-up. He has been in the club since 2009 signing up for them as a young teenager. He has now spent over 9 years at the club and has been out on a staggering ten different loan spells. He has never played a single game for the club and the player is reportedly frustrated to a point where he wants a permanent exit.

The case for Delac is one of the many situations the club has going on with young talents being wasted away on a daily basis and the club seriously need to get their act of responsibility towards football together and not just make it a business for profit.
