Lucas Piazon hits out at Chelsea loan policy
Chelsea’s on loan Brazilian attacker Lucas Piazon has hit out at the club’s policy of loaning out young players en masse. The Blues have undertaken a policy of mass buying young talent from all over Europe and South America and loaning players out in large numbers, in order to generate profit for sales or else hope that players develop on loan ready for Chelsea’s first team.
The 22 year old joined Chelsea in 2012 and has since taken in loan spells at Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Frankfurt, Reading and has recently joined Fulham on loan. But the 22 year old told the Daily Mail that his several temporary spells have not helped his development.
“It makes no sense be loaned out all the time. It’s not good for any player, I speak from experience. Being in a different place every year is not good for someone that is 22 years old. It is difficult to get a place in the team.
“They have their own players. You do your best to try to get a place in the squad, to get minutes on the pitch, score and create goals. That's all you can do. I still want to do it at Chelsea, of course I came to Europe to play for Chelsea. Maybe I can return in the future. If this is not possible, I want to go somewhere and stay for more than one season. Not just get stuck in the club. "
