Bertrand Traorè hits out at Chelsea after his move to Lyon was official yesterday.
The 21-year-old was signed by the French side in a permanent deal for £ 8.8m, with the Blues believed to have a buy-back clause.
The Burkina Faso international, who joined Chelsea from Auxuerre’s academy seven years ago, made just 10 Premier League appearances for the Blues and claims he was never given a fair crack of the whip:
“I was trained at the club, I did everything, two seasons ago I even pushed the holders a bit, but we all saw what happened,’ he said.
“I made a very good preseason and finally I was forced to go on loan, I did not want to repeat the same scenario this season.
‘It was time to look for stability in a club where I would play a leading role, where I would be a ‘cadre’ of the team, I think that here I can do everything to be among these sort of people.”
