Is This The Season Christian Atsu Finally Realizes His Potential?
Remember Christian Atsu? The Ghana International who impressed everyone at Vitesse and had a really good World Cup outing last year?
The young winger was touted as someone who would eventually force himself into our starting eleven after the conclusion of FIFA World Cup last year. Instead, the then 22-year-old was loaned to Everton to gain some valuable Premier League experience. Roberto Martinez was expected to help Atsu in his development just like he did with Gerard Deulofeu in the previous season. Unfortunately, the loaned turned out to be a disaster for the Ghanaian and stalled his growth as a player.
Roberto Martinez was expected to help Atsu in his development just like he did with Gerard Deulofeu in the previous season. Unfortunately, the loaned turned out to be a total disaster for the Ghanaian and could only stall his growth as a player. Untimely injuries to Atsu didn’t help the case either!
Atsu needed a fresh start at a club where he could start regularly and that’s why Chelsea opted to send him on loan to Bournemouth! The club has just been promoted from the Championship and it is an excellent opportunity for Atsu to establish himself as a regular in the squad. It looks like Atsu is enjoying his time with the club as he made his Cherries debut in the pre-season friendly 4-1 win over Philadelphia Union.
The Ghanaian had the following to say after the victory:
“I think it is so fun to be with these great guys.
“I’m getting used to them and I think that now we are a team. When you look at the activities that we did, it was so fun and we did a lot. We laughed together and you can see a great unity and team spirit between us.
“I really enjoyed it. You can see I am very happy in the team and I am hoping and praying that we will have a great season.”

It’s good to know that Atsu is finally enjoying his Football. The last season at Everton was really depressing and it’s time Atsu realizes his true potential on the pitch, if he is to challenge for the first team at the Bridge. Good Luck Christian! Hope you have a good time on the pitch and try to steal a few points off our rivals, will ya?
