‘Thankfully it has paid off’: Cole Palmer reveals the exact reason for leaving Manchester City

Cole Palmer has showcased why he is one of the best young players in the soccer scene. The Englishman left Manchester City to join a struggling Chelsea side for a fee of ÂŁ42.5 million last summer, and he has proven that this decision was great for him individually.

Despite Chelsea’s struggles this season, Palmer has been outstanding and can take pride in his performance. He has now explained the reasons behind his departure from City.

Cole Palmer explains his City exit

Cole Palmer has revealed exactly why he left such a successful Manchester City team, which had just won the treble. He expressed that the decision was due to his desire to play every game possible, saying, “I decided to leave City as I thought I was ready to play football week in week out. That’s the reason I come to Chelsea. I wanted to showcase my ability week in week out like I said. Thankfully it’s paid off.”

Many were surprised that Cole left a great City team with a manager like Pep, under whom he could have improved even more. However, on the other hand, he wouldn’t have received the same playing time as he has at Chelsea. Therefore, it has been a great decision for the 21-year-old to make such a tough choice for the growth of his career.

Pep had previously said that Cole would have gotten more minutes this season if he stayed. He admitted that as soon as Cole wanted to leave, he had to accept it. Cole has been truly amazing at Chelsea, and there is a chance that he could be selected for the upcoming Euro tournament in Germany with the England squad. He has gained much interest from many clubs as a promising player, and it is safe to say he has made a smart decision by leaving his former club.

Cole Palmer’s season so far

Cole Palmer has been having a great season, even though Chelsea cannot say the same. The Blues recently lost the Carabao Cup final, are 11th in the Premier League with no prospect of European soccer next season, and only have the FA Cup to play for. However, Cole has been having one of the best seasons for an English youngster.

Palmer has scored 11 goals and provided 8 assists in the Premier League, all as a midfielder. In total, he has contributed to 26 goals this season, leading the list for players under 21, equaled only by Jude Bellingham. He has been Chelsea’s best player and a major reason for their current standing.

There is no doubt Cole Palmer is a player for the future, and Chelsea would count on him once again when they face Arsenal in the Premier League.
