World class signing to have ‘huge impact’ at Chelsea after summer move – club told
Former Man City Raheem Sterling has been tipped to have a huge impact at Chelsea this season by Rio Ferdinand
After Man City made the big decision to sign Erling Haaland in a deal worth £50 million – Sterling knew that his time at Stamford Bridge was over and he needed to leave the club
And that allowed ChelseaFC to swoop in and offer him a move to Stamford Bridge – and after a few weeks of speculation – the English winger made the move back to London and has been hailed as one of the signings of the summer
Sterling scored on Saturday against Everton in his debut for Chelsea but it was ruled offside – And the Man Utd legend reckons there will be more to come from the England international.
Ferdinand told William Hill: “I was surprised there wasn’t as much, not anger, but disbelief from the City fans, and there wasn’t as much ‘yes we’ve got him’ at Chelsea.
“It was weird, it was one of those signings… and the price – you think for the output that he’s had in his career at City alone, I was expecting more both ways.
“I don’t know why it was like that. If you ask every right-back in the league who their hardest player to play against at left-wing is, he’d be in everyone’s top two or three, easy, and top of most lists.
“It’s a big season for him and I think he’ll have a good opportunity to have a big impact.”
Sterling brings quality – he brings pace – he brings skill – he brings goals and he brings that level of quality that most of the ChelseaFC players are lacking right now
They have managed to pull off a great deal and it would be a huge shock if he failed to be a massive success
He is the type of player that could add 20-goals to that Chelsea attack this season
