Former Chelsea youngster Josh McEachran was one of the biggest names to have come out from the Chelsea academy. The former Chelsea prodigy was tipped for greatness, but his career didn’t go as expected, and after series of loans, he was eventually sold to Brentford.

McEachran will return to Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and will still feel the love of the Chelsea fans, but it’ll be in a Brentford jersey, as Chelsea host Brentford on Saturday in the FA Cup.

McEachran wasn’t really given a chance to prove his worth in Chelsea, but the youngster still believes he has what it takes to play for Chelsea.

He told the Daily Mail: “It’s hard, isn’t it? [as a manager to get results],”

“John Terry is still the last one who has come through and played consecutive seasons [for the first team].

“Managers are under so much pressure, so to chuck a young English lad in, it’s not easy.

“Or you sign a foreign player with experience. At 17 or 18, I was good enough to play for Chelsea.

“I still think I could play for Chelsea. It’s just about the opportunity. You need confidence. I had that with Carlo [Ancelotti].”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
