Mourinho: “Loftus Cheek will play”

It looks like loanees from Chelsea will have the chance to play a part next season

Jose Mourinho insisted he intends to play at least two young players next season including Ruben Loftus Cheek. The 19 years old has been training with the senior squad in the past few weeks and made his debut against Sporting Lisbon back in December last year.

Jose Mourinho said:

“Next season, Ruben will not be a kid in the development process. He will be a first-team player, absolutely ready to play and compete. And we will do the same with two or three or four players.”

Chelsea is the team in Europe with the most players on loans. Mourinho will do his best to accommodate everyone, he added:

“Some of the older ones will go on loan to play every game in the Championship or the Premier League, even abroad. And we will bring some of the younger ones into the process. But to have them all at the same time in the first-team squad is hard.”

“I cannot have a squad of 10 men and 10 kids. I must have a squad like we have now of 16 or 17 seniors and three or four kids.”
