Sarri: Loftus-Cheek will become Chelsea’s main player
Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri said that he counted on midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek as he sees Ruben’s potential to become the main player of the Blues.
22-year-old Loftus-Cheek was marked by only one appearance in Chelsea’s starting line-up in the Premier League’s current season, but at the same time, he participated in each of the last seven games, taking into account all the competitions.
Naturally, thoughts about leaving on loan were visiting Ruben, especially after the successful experience at Crystal Palace in the previous season. However, Sarri assures the Englishman that he will be able to progress at Chelsea.
Sarri admits that Ruben is a great player. It was hard for him at the beginning of the season but he played in the last 7 games of the team. He is adding in tactics and everyone at the club sees this.
Loftus-Cheek played on the flank in the last match, but Sarri expects him to play only in the centre in future.
