AC Milan MF admits he was ‘not happy’ when asked to play wing-back in the past

Former Chelsea player Ruben Loftus-Cheek (27-AC Milan) has revealed that he was unhappy playing as a wing-back.

“AC Milan’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek has claimed he was unhappy with the negative role he was given at Chelsea,” the British publication The Evening Standard reported on Thursday.

Loftus-Cheek left Chelsea this summer to join Italian Serie A giants AC Milan. He claims he was asked to play more as a wing-back in his final years at Chelsea and was not happy at all.

“For the last two years, I’ve mostly played a defensive role,” Loftus-Cheek said. But it wasn’t natural for me,” she said.

“I’ve always liked to play with the ball at my feet, free to make 토토 choices and decisions. But in the last two seasons at Chelsea I wasn’t able to do that and that made me unhappy,” he added.

Loftus-Cheek has done well since joining AC Milan. He has been able to play in the central midfield where he wants to and has two assists in three games, all of which have been wins.

“It’s nice to play in a more free position now,” he said, adding that he’s happy with his current form and play.

Meanwhile, AC Milan will face fierce rivals Inter Milan on Sunday. Ahead of his first ‘Milan Derby’, Loftus-Cheek explained how his move to AC Milan came about.

“After playing against AC Milan in the Champions League, the club showed interest in me, but at the time I didn’t think much of it because I still had a season left at Chelsea. But after talking to coach Stefano Pioli, things changed. Milan has always been a great club and I knew I had to join them.”
