Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has revealed that his move to the Chelsea from Everton has been justified by his massive improvement under Maurizio Sarri this season.
The Englishman has been in good form while on International duty and has performed much better for Chelsea this season being somewhat of a regular starter under Maurizio Sarri. His impressive performances for Chelsea helped with a recall to the English National team and he was excellent against Montenegro earlier this week, scoring twice and providing one assist.
There were question marks about Barkley’s move to Chelsea, but he feels it was the right thing to do for his career. He said: I am away from my family and down in London by myself. I am in a totally different environment from Liverpool. I miss being with my family, it is totally different.
It is how I am maturing as a person and a player. It is good. Since I made the move it was good to challenge myself and win trophies and to improve as a player.
I’ve changed compared to when I was 18, 19 or 20. My diet is much better. My approach to games is much better and I am going into them with the right preparation and I am more relaxed, rather than think about things too much.
Barkley returned to Goodison Park for the first time since his transfer prior to the international break and was greeted with boos and hoos as the Toffees secured a 2-0 victory.
In other news, Everton are reportedly interested in Chelsea starlet Daishawn Redan. Redan left Ajax and moved to Chelsea’s academy in 2017 but he could soon be leaving, with claims from Germany that the Blues, West Ham and Leicester City are keen.
Chelsea’s official website describes the 18-year-old as a versatile forward, who can play on the left wing or as a number 10, he’s also been deployed as a first choice striker this season by under-23s manager Joe Edwards.
