- Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand advices Loftus-Cheek to leave Chelsea.
- The Chelsea mid-fielder has seen little or no action on the field since the arrival of Chelsea’s new boss; Sarri.
Rio Ferdinand has told Ruben Loftus-Cheek to leave Chelsea if he is continually left out of Maurizio Sarri’s plans.
The 22-year-old England international has played just 33 minutes for Chelsea this season.
The arrivals of the likes of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic have played a part in limiting Loftus-Cheek’s game time at Chelsea in what many thought would have been a breakthrough season for him.
Sarri promised that the player will get quality game time due to Chelsea’s congested fixture list.

However, Ferdinand has warned that the player faces the possibility of being rendered mentally and emotionally stale if he remains at Stamford Bridge;
Ferdinand further said on BT Sport that.
“it is Obvious that the players are not good enough [for these teams],’
“The young kids like [Phil] Foden, [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek and [Dominic] Solanke who are winning tournaments for England at youth level, if they’re good enough they’ll be playing”
“It’s such a lucrative game for these [club] managers and their jobs are on the edge every single game, and they want players who are going to win instantly”
‘‘These players obviously aren’t being blooded properly.”
”If I’m Ruben Loftus-Cheek I’m banging down the manager’s door and saying ‘are you going to play me or not?”
”I’ve got potential, I think I’m better than half these players you’re bringing in, if you aren’t going to play me, tell me and I’m going.’
”Don’t have me hanging about here getting stale’. If you’re not playing in the team as a young kid you go stale mentally and physically.”
