Remember Josh McEachran? Yeah, the same lad who should have been ruling our midfield by now! Yep, the same lad who made his debut under Carlo Ancelotti in the Champions League. The same lad who was much hyped by the English media and failed to live up to his reputation! Well, after 6 dismal loan spells, the 22-year-old has moved to Brentford on a permanent basis.
Much was expected from Josh, as he was touted as the player who would eventually make it to the biggest stage for us after John Terry but, unfortunately, things didn’t quite work out. Injuries, bad form and instability probably were the reasons he failed to make it in our first time. Hopefully, Chelsea has finally learned from this situation and upcoming players like Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be handled with more care.
Meanwhile, Bees boss Marinus Dijkhuizen was very happy with the addition of the English Midfielder to his squad and had following things to say:
“Josh is a versatile midfield player who can play in a holding role and as a playmaker. He was a big talent at Chelsea and now I look forward to working with him and our coaching staff in order to take Josh on to the next level. Although he played at Vitesse last season, he has good experience of English football and will be able to fit into our playing style very quickly.”
