As we reported earlier, Papy Djilobodji has been left out of our Champions League squad for the group stages games, as Chelsea made it official on its website.
The other news that has been official is that the Senegalese Centre-Back will put on the number 15 shirt for us. The club’s official statement read:
“New signing Papy Djilobodji has been given his squad number for the season ahead and will wear the no.15 shirt.”

The 26-year-old looks more and more like a stop gap signing by Mourinho who is here to fill the gaps before we eventually sign a world class Centre Back in January or most probably next summer window.
Although, that’s not to say that Djilopodji can’t turn out to be a shrewd signing ala Azpilicueta or Cahill who also came as a cheap and unknown commodities.
I guess, only time will tell how this signing turns out. For now, we can only hope he settles in quickly at the Bridge.
