On social media, Chelsea fans were ecstatic that Dujon Sterling had joined Thomas Tuchel’s senior squad before next season.Sterling shared a couple of training-ground photos from the preseason camp on Twitter Wednesday.
After gaining some first-team experience with Wigan Athletic in 2019/20, the 21-year-old spent last season with the Under-21s.
He joined the Blues when he was eight years old and made his senior debut in 2017.
Tuchel now looks to require to offer him a chance together with his team, which has piqued the interest of the many Chelsea supporters.
Here’s how they reacted to his latest update on popular microblogging site, Twitter :
His post-academy development has been sporadic, and as a result, he has been somewhat stunted.
He practiced with the men’s squad on a daily basis under Antonio Conte, but his possibilities faded after Maurizio Sarri took control.He went on loan to Coventry City and subsequently Wigan Athletic, but due to an Achilles injury, he didn’t play for the Latics until late October.
He was then sidelined for several months thanks to a hamstring injury; by the time his right-back had healed, covid-19 had kicked in.
Sterling developed a terrible sickness that put his career in jeopardy during the primary lockdown. He was then infected with covid-19.
For the nonce , it’s only fair that he rubs elbows with Tuchel’s team after what he’s been through.
According to football.london, the defender wowed Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho during the April international break, having previously impressed him at Borussia Dortmund.
