‘Recruitment binge’ Chelsea’s endless fall, concerns over ‘£170m star’
Shocker. Enzo Fernandez is in crisis less than a year after joining Chelsea.
“Former Arsenal boss Paul Merson has made a worrying judgment about Fernandez’s long-term future,” the British Press Express reported on Jan. 6.
Fernandes, born in 2001, joined Chelsea from Benfica (Portugal) in the winter transfer window last January. His transfer fee was a whopping £107 million. Expectations were high. But it seems to have taken him a while to settle in. He went scoreless in 18 English Premier League (EPL) games in the 2022-2023 season. He’s also been silent in four league games this season. However, he recently scored his first goal for Chelsea in the League Cup 스포츠토토.
As the Express notes, “Chelsea have undergone a major overhaul. Mauricio Pochettino has been tasked with leading the revolution, but the results are yet to come. Merson believes Pochettino will turn things around. But if it doesn’t happen right away, he says, “we may not see Fernandez.
“Pochettino is a good manager, but they have brought in too many players,” Merson said. How long will Fernandes last, there is no movement of players,” he lamented. Chelsea has one win, one draw, and two losses in its first four games of the season. They are in 12th place.
