Those Chelsea Have Let Go…………………

Those Chelsea Have Let Go…………………

This season we`ve all watched on as two players, who were once on the books of Chelsea Football Club, have thrived in the Premier League.

The two players, as you can probably guess, being Kevin De Bruyne and Mo Salah.

Both were sold, during Jose Mourinho`s tenure as the Chelsea boss, after being deemed to not be suitable to the style of football the club was set to play.

In hindsight, both decisions have proven to be hugely questionable, with both players more than likely to be selected in the PFA Premier League Team of the Season when the awards take place.

However, over on mainland Europe, another player who was once on the books of Chelsea Football Club continues to make a huge impression, the player being Juan Cuadrado.

Cuadrado, now on the books of the Italian reigning champions, Juventus, is so highly rated by his club that, according to the Italian news source, Calciomercato, the Columbian winger isn`t available at any price.

In fact, just delving into the old grey matter, it seems that Chelsea have a habit of letting those go who still have loads to offer with the names of Juan Mata, Oriel Romeu, Romelu Lukaku, Ryan Bertrand and Nemanja Matic all instantly springing to mind.

If anyone has any time to spare we`d appreciate it if you could assemble a starting eleven of those who Chelsea have let go but are still performing admirably in the Premier League, just drop your starting eleven into the comments facility beneath this article.

Can't confine it to premiere league only, Terry and Kalas are doing well in the Championship, as is Piazon, Schurlle in Dortmund, but Mitchy has been a bust. Thorgan Hazard is having a good season .Atletico have Luis and Costa ,Carvalho is still going at Monaco, Traore is tearing up the French league .Rather than moping about the players we lost, the bigger question is why did we not insert buy back clauses ?, and who made this blunder, as much as Mourinho drove many of these out , we should also be pointing the finger at which board members let so much talent get away, and lets remember we sold Salah to Roma for 8 mil, he is now worth 100 mil .

And lets not include Terry (too expensive and too old ), Costa, Matic (both forced moves ) Cuadrado never wanted to come here, and tried to leave before he even got a place to stay . Championship does not equate EPL standard,. But all the rest, that is criminal, we only have ourselves to blame .
