Cole Palmer has explained the reasons behind his decision to leave behind everything he knew to move to London and join Chelsea in the summer.


Some people expressed disapproval of the decision. Cole Palmer, who began the current season with goals in the Community Shield and UEFA Super Cup, won winner's medals in the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League at the end of August. But after those achievements with Manchester City, where the 21-year-old had played his whole career up to that point, Palmer made the decision to leave the Etihad and move to Chelsea's Stamford Bridge.

The striker stated why he thought it was crucial to keep moving forward in his career, even if leaving the club where he had played since the Under-8s and the city where he was born and bred would never be an easy option.

To be honest, it occurred quickly,' remembers Palmer. "I was talking to my dad and I talked to someone at Chelsea, but I really didn't know what to do."I considered it nonstop for a few days before deciding that I needed to go receive consistent playing time for my career. For me, it was a major step. It was a big deal for me to relocate down here on my own since I had never left Manchester, not even on a loan or anything.

Thus far, Palmer's choice has shown to be justified; he has already adapted to life with the Blues this season. Cole has earned his first call-up to the senior England group for this week's international break after starting our past six Premier League games and tallying four goals and two assists in his previous five outings in the league.


 The striker was quick to credit head coach Mauricio Pochettino for allowing him the opportunity to play his natural style and showcase his entire range of abilities as he thought back on the thrilling start to his Chelsea career. "I can see it since I moved to Chelsea, as many people have told me about his ability to work with young players," he continued. I'm eager to continue working with him since I love working with him.


As a player, I always want the ball, wherever it may be, to attempt to assist the team win or get out of a tight spot. "I'm thankful for him because he has given me the self-assurance and freedom to use my strengths wherever I want to be on the field."


Palmer has already shown remarkable talent, and Pochettino himself has stated that he believes there is much more in store for him in the future. When he returns to the Premier League, ideally as a fully-fledged England international, it will be wonderful to watch him continue to live up to his promise in a Chelsea shirt against Newcastle United.

 At Chelsea, Reece James is following Thiago Silva's captaincy instruction and has reminded the Brazilian that he is "nearly old enough to be my dad."


The armband at Stamford Bridge for 2023–2024 has been passed down to the England international full-back. At 23, James is still comparatively young, but he has played for the Blues long enough to accumulate almost 150 appearances and 16 caps for his nation.

James, a rising star from home, is eager to set an example for his colleagues in West London and is content to have a 39-year-old colleague to confide in for advice. James stated on the official Chelsea website: "It's been a great captain." However, it was challenging when I wasn't well since it's challenging to have as much of an impact when I'm not in the group all the time. When I'm unsure of anything or feel like I could use some guidance, Thiago is definitely the one who helps me the most. He might almost be my father in age! That's why I go to him. I've had fun thus far, but it's not for me to declare what kind of captain I am. It's a privilege.


James, who has had his fair share of fitness issues over the years, is returning from injury for Chelsea and says he's in a better place than he has been in a while. "I haven't felt this good in a long time," he continued. I can definitely feel my fitness and strength increasing once more. I've been able to play consistently lately. Even though I can't play for ninety minutes just yet, I'm working hard in the gym, playing hard, and challenging myself every day to get back to my best. I'm glad to be supporting the team once more.


It takes time to regain shape and build back up after being away for over three months. Some people believe that you should immediately return to your previous level as soon as you leave, but that isn't how things operate. You must go steadily and slowly. I have been doing just that. I'm making modest progress.
