Winger Christian Atsu has defender his decision to sign for Chelsea way back in 2013
Regarded as one of the most exciting talents in world football back in 2013, Atsu was signed by the club in hope that he could develop into the next best winger in world football
But The 29-year-old, currently out of contract after four years at Newcastle United, did not make a competitive appearance for us during his time at the club amid stiff competition for places.
It has been a career move that could have cost seeing his best football, but despite that fact, he has no doubts it was the correct move for his career: ‘If someone tells me this road is wrong, they must know what would have happened if I’d stayed at Porto,’ he told the Athletic.
‘Would I be at a big European club now? Maybe, but nobody can tell me that for certain. If Chelsea want to sign you, how can you say no?
‘I believed I could make it at Chelsea so I went there. It didn’t happen but that does not make it a bad move.’
The Ghana international is now looking for his next move, which is likely to be outside of England.
‘I am weighing up my options,’ he added. ‘I would prefer it to be warm weather but we’ll see. I’ve loved being in England and I have offers from here but I think I need to move away.’
Look, Atsu had alot of talent that could have seen him become a top-level player, so it is a shame that such a gifted player made the wrong decision too early, was tempted by money, and has seen his future head in a direction that many people didnt anticipate
