Chelsea news: Midfielder sends message after completing move
Ruben Loftus-Cheek has said farewell to CHELSEA on social media.
He was once tipped to be a real star for the Blues – but he was unable to live upto the hype that surrounded him as a kid – and although he has been a solid player – he has never quite made that starting spot his own at the club.
Loftus-Cheek signs a four-year deal at the Italian giants after spending 19 years at Stamford Bridge.
He wrote: “I don’t even know where to begin with this. I’ve been at Chelsea since the age of 8 and to come through the ranks and play senior football at this club… there’s just no better feeling.
“I’ve truly gone from being a boy to a man at this club over the last 19 years and it’s hard to say goodbye to so many people that have helped guide and shape me as the person and player I am today.
“It’s always been my dream to play for Chelsea so being able to win the FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth Cup during my days in the academy, to then making my first team debut and winning the Premier League & Europa League during my senior career, is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
“I would like to thank everyone associated with Chelsea football club who have helped me during my career. To the coaches that i’ve worked with, the backroom staff and my teammates to the people i’ve seen day to day at the training ground over the last 19 years, thank you all.
“To the fans, you’ve supported me and had my back from day one, no words will ever be enough to tell you how much that has meant to my family and I. I wish nothing but the best to everyone here and hope to see the club get back on the right path and winning silverware as soon as possible.
“It’s time for me to begin a new adventure in football, to live in a new country and experience a new culture, but I really do hope our paths will cross again in the future.
“Thank you for everything.”
