Chelsea’s loan system has been cristicised by many outside the club but Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen, who returned to Chelsea this summer after a two-year loan spell at Borussia Mochengladbach, believes the loan system helps Chelsea youngsters.
When asked if he felt the loan system helps Chelsea’s youngsters, Christensen told Evening Standard: “I’d like to think so. Some people say that they just abandon you, that they don’t keep an eye on you, but that is definitely not true.
“There is (loan technical coach) Eddie Newton and (assistant) Paulo Ferreira doing a great job and they visited me quite a few times.
“They would also send me videos of my games, telling me where to improve. I always watched those videos, would take the advice on board and take it into the next game, even though sometimes I’d forget another thing! I got all the help I needed.”
