Cole Palmer explains why he Left Man City for Chelsea: His Words were,
“I’m not saying I shied away from the competition (for places at Man City) because I have never done that,” Palmer said as quoted by Metro UK while explaining his decision to move to the west London club.
“I’d been there (around the first team) for a few years and wanted more of an opportunity to play – in my position and to have more of an impact.
“It was a huge decision [moving to Chelsea]. When I left the training ground on Thursday I knew I was going to London the next day. It all just hit me, sat in the car and going to drive out. I was just thinking, “you’ve been here 15 years”.
“I don’t know any difference. I have never been on loan. I have never moved out of Manchester. The only time I have ever been outside of Manchester is on holiday or away games. Going there does feel weird, but there is no time to waste. I have got to get to it.”
‘Hopefully I can go back soon to see the guys on City’s academy side, staff are still there who have been with me since I was six years old. To see them would be nice. Then when we play City at Stamford Bridge and the Etihad, I can say byes properly and say thank you.’
