Despite having some of the world’s best youngsters in their academy, Chelsea have been a club with a rather poor reputation of promoting youth players.
The academy yet again lost out on the promise of youth when Liverpool announced the signing of promising young Chelsea forward Dominic Solanke. The striker will sign for Jurgen Klopp’s side when his contract expires next month.
The poaching of the highly rated youngster by Liverpool has understandably brought contrasting reactions from both sides with Liverpool fans rejoicing at the transfer while Chelsea fans lamenting the loss of yet another youngster.
One Chelsea fan in particular showed his displeasure at the development posting a venomous X-rated comment with regards to the transfer.
And the comment became a hot talking point when fellow Chelsea youth player Izzy Brown apparently liked the comment. T
hough Brown later responded that he never meant to like the comment, his Chelsea allegiances were already well established before that with many eagle-eyed fans noting the development and acknowledging his allegiance to the club.
