MARIN: CHELSEA CARE ABOUT PLAYER LOANED OUT
Former Chelsea player Marko Marin has praised the effort of the club at caring for players even loaned out to other sides.
Though the player flopped and had to spend time away from Stamford Bridge, he was happy the club looked out for him. Marin told Goal:
“We talked once a month via Skype. After each match, I got an analysis from them. Chelsea did that very well,” he disclosed.
He revealed that the club’s officials ensured they felt loved by the club despite being away at other clubs for various reasons.
“Paulo Ferreira and Eddie Newton remained in contact with the loan players. It’s not like they dismiss you and forget you. I’m still happy that I was part of Chelsea and I’m still a fan of the club,” the former player said.
On the other hand, Chelsea are gearing up to play Everton in the Premier League this weekend. Two of the hottest strikers in the league would be facing off. Diego Costa and Romelu Lukaku have been banging in the goals for their respective clubs, and they would have a chance at proving their mettle when they met at Stamford Bridge.
Since the change in formation, Chelsea have gone on a four-game winning streak. More impressive, they have kept clean sheets even as they keep banging in goals. However, they would have to confront a player they tried to re-sign after letting the player leave. The fees Everton wanted for the Belgium international were on the high side as they were keen on keeping him.
“Diego is not only scoring the goals but working a lot for the team,” Coach Antonio Conte said of the Spaniard’s efforts this term. Costa has netted eight times while Lukaku follows closely with seven. Most likely, one of these stars would get a goal in the game.
