Ross Barkley has been speaking with Chelsea‘s official website following his permanent £15m move to Stamford Bridge, which was confirmed yesterday.
The 24-year-old said: “I’m looking forward to getting started, putting the injury behind me and trying to be successful at Chelsea. I’m back in training, I’m doing everything as normal and I’m very close to being ready to play games. I’ve been training for a few weeks now and I’m feeling great”.
The former Everton star could be selected in every competition, including the UEFA Champions League. And Barkley himself confirmed he’s really excited about it: “Yes, of course I am really excited. It will be the first time I’ve been involved in the competition and every player wants to play in the Champions League. I want to win everything while I’m here and to be competing for all the biggest trophies, as the club does every year. My aim is to be a winner”.
Then he added: “I want to continue to improve season after season, which I think I’ve done. I’ve already played a lot of games in the Premier League, I’ve got a lot of experience under my belt and I look forward to showing that”.
