Danny Drinkwater describes his Chelsea career as “Shambles”
Danny Drinkwater has described his Chelsea career as a ‘mess’, having not played a Premier League game for the club since 2018.
The 31-year-old signed a five-year contract for the Blues in 2017 worth £ 35million.
Since then he has only played a total of 23 games for Roman Abramovich’s club and has scored one goal.
According to talkSPORT, Drinkwater had a lot to say about his Chelsea career following his Reading debut against Fulham on Saturday.
“Can I paint a picture? “ Drinkwater asked. “No, it was a mess.
“It’s football, it’s never easy, it’s never easy. I’m just excited for the new challenges.
“I have to (launch my career)” He continued.
“I’m more excited about this than I have been for a few years now, especially how my career has gone.
“The games, find the fun of football, then go from there. A few slipped, I made mistakes, I didn’t play.”
Chelsea signed the English midfielder in 2017 after Leicester’s triumphant Premier League victory.
But since the 2019/20 season, Drinkwater has been loaned to Burnley, Aston Villa Kasimpasa and now Reading.
Now, with just one season left on his contract with Chelsea, the 31-year-old will be keen to rejuvenate his career, and his Reading debut on Saturday showed many promising signs.
In a 2-1 win over Fulham, Drinkwater came on after just 20 minutes and saw 70 minutes of a competitive league game.
Let’s see what the future holds.
