Chelsea has had a busy transfer window with a few high profile players joining the English club such as: Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa but at the same time they have released a few of their own performers from the club which is the case of: Ashley Cole, Samuel Eto’o and substitute goalkeeper Hilario.
Samuel Eto’o did not have a healthy relationship with Jose Mourinho as the Portuguese manager has even put into question the age and abilities of the formerBarcelonaattacker, during the previous seasonChelseasuffered trying to score consistent goals through their forwards and a time arrived when Mourinho stated that some of his own players just aren’t good enough.
“Contrary to what a puppet says about my age, I am still physically fit. At 33, I feel really good. I have proven that I can do better than the younger players.” That was a statement released by Samuel Eto’o as he responded to Jose Mourinho, during the previous Premier League season.
The future of Ashley Cole was being put into question even before the previous season concluded as the English defender only managed on making 17 appearances as he had to settle with a place on the sidelines ofStamfordBridgefor an extended period of time and recently joined the Italian side As.Roma as he penned a 2 year deal.
Petr Cech is another player who has a fairly undecided future atStamfordBridgeas the Czech goalkeeper will have to fight for a place in the starting lineup of Jose Mourinho with the arrival of Thibaut Courtouis edging every-time closer and closer.
Thibaut Courtois is being hailed to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world even at his young age, he has displayed world class abilities and now that his loan deal with Athletic Madrid has reached its end, theBelgiumshot-stopper will return to Stamford Brdige.
