Chelsea winger recalled after a loan disaster with only 4 league starts

Chelsea have just confirmed the recall of Diego Moreira, the young winger who had been at Lyon.

It always seemed like an ambitious move. Lyon aren’t in the best shape at the moment but it was still a big gamble for Moreira, who had almost no senior experience anywhere. It was a predictable disaster, and the Portuguese was playing less and less.

This frees up a foreign loan slot for another player to leave, but it will be very interesting to see what we do with Moreira. He played in the league cup for us earlier this season, so he can’t now play for a third team. Presumably he will just stay at Cobham as a training ground dummy.

In the big picture, the fact that Moreira joins Andrey Santos, Cesare Casadei and David Datro Fofana as players who had their loans cut short shows what a poor job was done of picking loan destinations this season. Those are some of the most expensive and high profile players we were sending out, and all of them has ended up abandoning ship after 6 months.
