Cole Palmer’s move from Manchester City to Chelsea has him enjoying early success with his new club.
The player highlights the positive outcome of his transfer and expresses his satisfaction with Chelsea.
Cole Palmer, the recent addition to Chelsea’s squad, has emphasized that his decision to leave Manchester City, a club with a rich history of Premier League victories, in favor of Chelsea is already proving to be a rewarding move.
Palmer’s departure from his childhood club, Manchester City, took place on September 1, 2023.
He made the switch to Chelsea for a transfer fee of €47 million, primarily driven by the desire for more regular playing time, which he couldn’t secure under the management of coach Pep Guardiola.
During his tenure at Manchester City, Palmer participated in 110 games across various competitions, contributing with 6 goals and 2 assists to the team’s success.
His time with City saw him winning the Carabao Cup, FA Cup, UEFA Super Cup, two Premier League titles, and a UEFA Champions League title.
Upon his arrival at Chelsea, Cole Palmer swiftly earned his place in coach Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.
Notably, he took on the role of the club’s designated penalty taker.
In his brief tenure at Chelsea, Palmer has made a significant impact, tallying three goals and four assists in just ten appearances.
Looking ahead to Sunday, November 12, when Chelsea is set to face his former club, Manchester City, Palmer anticipates a crucial match at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea aims to build on their impressive 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Monday.
Expressing his feelings about his new journey, the 21-year-old English attacking midfielder shared, “I’m really enjoying it at Chelsea every day, on and off the pitch.”
He acknowledged the substantial change for himself and his family when making the move to Chelsea but underlined the rarity of opportunities like this, making him grateful that it is currently yielding positive results.
