Chelsea starlet Armando Broch has ruled out the 2020/21 loan at Vitesse.
The young striker has signed a new five-year contract with the West London club. Earlier this month, after a successful loan for the Dutch club last season, he scored 11 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions.
The Albanian follows in the footsteps of academy graduate Mason Mount, who himself spent a season at Eredevisie after his youth career at Cobham.
“Personally I thought it was a good season and as a team we (Vitesse) had a very good season too. Not many people expected us to perform so well. “ said Broya as quoted Chelsea Official Website…
“I really liked it. It was my first time on loan, it was a great experience for me – developing as a player, understanding adult football, going out and playing with real men in a good, competitive league.
“It was very good for me to develop from a player’s point of view and develop as a man, living on my own, away from my family and everything else. It was a really good stepping stone for me to start my high school career. “
The striker was also wrong about the importance of going on loan in another country and testing himself in another league.
He added: “When you’re at the academy like me, you don’t really know what it’s like until you go outside. I can definitely tell the difference in the speed of their training, the way they play and the way they play. they move the ball like pressing the other team.
“You can definitely tell right away that you are no longer playing academic football, you are playing adult football against men who have families to make a living.
“I came from the academy and immediately went to study in another country, so I had to quickly adapt, but I think it was successful.”
