Chelsea FC Team Under-21s Squad 2018/2019
Chelsea FC Under-21 team. Chelsea FC Under-21s squad 2018-19.
Chelsea are a club who are known for their recent success. Ever since the change of ownership to the billionaire and oligarch Roman Abramovich, Chelsea have had it easier in the league to win matches.
However, that does not mean that the competition at the top is easy. The likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool have also influxed heavy amounts of money into the club.
Sometimes Chelsea have come out on top and sometimes the Blues have failed to do so. They have not been able to compete at times with Manchester City’s money or with the club history of Manchester United and Liverpool.
This means that they have lost out on players who have gone on to cost them the league or other trophies.
One big example of this was that Chelsea wanted to sign Robin Van Persie from Arsenal but Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United had more pulling power. Eventually Van Persie helped the Red Devils win the league by personally himself winning the Golden Boot.
Another example was that of Yaya Toure. When he left Barcelona, Chelsea wanted to sign him and a deal was on the cards. However, the player was also offered a position by Manchester City and the new rich boys in town blew the old Blues over by offering him more money and a better financial deal.
Toure went on to play crucial roles in two of Manchester City’s league wins, becoming the PFA Player of the Year in one of them.
This proved to Chelsea the importance of a system that depended neither on money nor on history of club. This made the Blues think of a new path. A path that would help them produce players year after year on their own without shelling out big money but at the same time making sure they win trophies with big players for the future.
