‘I think I’ll be more comfortable in England than Turin’- Zakaria opens up as he sign long term deal with Chelsea… Switzerland international Denis Zakaria believes his move to London will be more beneficial for the player than staying in Italy.
The Blues saw a busy transfer deadline day in the summer as they looked to bring a defensive midfielder to strengthen squad depth.
After failing to secure Edson Alvarezfrom Ajax, Chelsea then turned to Juventus midfielder Denis Zakaria.
Chelsea managed to secure the Swiss international in the last hours of the summer window, agreeing to a year loan deal with the Italian club.
However, since joining the club, Zakaria has not been able to break into Chelsea’s first 11 but has seen an international call-up to the Switzerland national team.
In a recent interview with the Swiss news page Blick, Zakaria spoke about his move to London and his new club.
“I didn’t know a move to Chelsea was possible until 6 hours before the end of the transfer window!
Juventus was playing too low, they should always be at top of the table and win 3-0 all matches… I think I’ll be happier in England than in Turin.
