Andreas Christensen reflects on ‘mentally tough’ Chelsea exit

Andreas Christensen has penned a farewell message to Chelsea fans as he prepares to finalise his move to Barcelona.

The centre-back brought his ten-year association with Chelsea to a close this summer as he allowed his contract to expire in order to seal a free transfer to Barça, despite Blues officials twice believing that they had reached an agreement over fresh terms with him.

Ultimately, they could not get a deal over the line and Christensen attracted plenty of criticism from supporters as a result, and the Dane has now admitted how tough it was to decide to leave Stamford Bridge.

“Having spent ten amazing years at this club, I felt now was the right time for a new beginning for me and my family,” he said in a statement. “Mentally the last few months have been tough as it’s not been an easy decision to leave this club and the fans.

“I’m not the most talkative person so sometimes people don’t understand how much the club and the fans mean to me. I will miss the players, staff and everyone here. I wish the best for the club and the fans in the future.”
