“Unfortunately, the board didn’t listen and we only have Romelu.”
“Yes, we missed a lot of opportunities,”
“That’s why you find me very upset and not wanting to continue.”
“No! We had a certain profile and we are very happy with the mentality and attitude of the group. We wanted it to stay like this. It is not a given to have this in a group. it is precious and can be decisive in football.”
“In my opinion, it is decisive and we are very careful and want to protect it. It was not about bringing the most possible amount of players into this group. We had to be sure that the player was good enough, in the right state of mind and can give with his personality to improve us.”
“We wanted to be as sure as we can with this transfer. There are always doubts about transfers but we are very sure with Romelu because he knows the club and what Chelsea is about. It is like this.”
“We think that Romelu, coming through here and always having Chelsea in his heart, is the perfect addition to our group because he embodies all that. We are proud of that in this club.”
“We had, of course, some exchanges on the phone but right now he is following the protocol and quarantining some more days and we will work on the details.”
