Football pundit, Clinton Morrison has told Sky Sports he’s surprised that Chelsea decided to let Armando Broja leave on loan, despite the obvious lack of goals they have in the striking department.
Broja joined Fulham on transfer deadline day after struggling to nail a regular place in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
He said: “I am surprised that they let Broja go, but it is good for Broja. He needs to play football, I think.
“We saw when he went on loan, he did ever so well at Southampton. He has had a lot of injuries, the young man. I still think he has got a lot of ability, he can hold the ball up, he can stretch them behind, he can score goals.
“For me, it is a good move for him. I wish him well. I was surprised Chelsea let him go just because they are struggling in the number 9 area, but maybe he sees Nkunku as the man to play there between now and the end of the season.”
Broja only scored two goals for Chelsea before he was sent on the six-month loan at Fulham, and it was becoming obvious that the 22-year-old wasn’t getting enough run of games at Chelsea, which is exactly what he needs to develop and become a better player. But hopefully, he’s able to thrive at Craven Cottage, and return to Stamford Bridge an improved player at the end of the season.
