Malo Gusto now shares what Chelsea staff told him before he even signed for the club
Chelsea defender Malo Gusto has admitted that he is not surprised by the Blues’ struggles after the discussions he had with the club before his move to west London.
Chelsea signed Malo Gusto from Lyon in January and the right-back has told RMC Sport that the directors at the Premier League outfit made it clear to him it is a long-term project at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues went on to finish in 12th place last season and are currently one spot higher this term.
It is not where Chelsea want to be, but there seems to be an acceptance that it will take a bit of time before the club return to the top again.
Long-term project at Chelsea
Gusto says he knew what he was walking into before he signed for Chelsea.
On his move to Stamford Bridge, he said: “Before signing for a big club like that, you think and find out about the situation. I wasn’t necessarily surprised. The club’s leaders told me that it was a long-term project that could take time to get started.”
Malo Gusto can be an important player for Chelsea and France
Chelsea may not be flying right now, but we think Gusto will still be happy with his move there.
The Blues are still one of the biggest clubs in the world and the Frenchman is getting to play for them.
Gusto has already made five starts in the Premier League for Mauricio Pochettino’s side and with Reece James’ injury problems not going away, he could quickly become a key player for his manager.
The former Lyon man has also just been called up to the France national team. At just 20 years of age, there is no reason why he cannot become an important defender for them either.
Gusto is going to grow and become a better footballer, especially if he continues to get regular minutes in the Premier League and carries on working with a coach like Pochettino.
