7 players who became successful after leaving Chelsea
#5 Ryan Bertrand
Ryan Bertrand went on loan to seven different clubs after coming through Chelsea’s academy. He was part of Chelsea’s Champions League and Europa League winning squads and even started the Champions League final in 2012.
Bertrand was deemed surplus to requirements under Jose Mourinho and was hence loaned out to Southampton for the current season.
At Southampton, the Englishman has become one of the best full-backs in the league this season with some impressive performances and this eventually led to the Saints signing him permanently in January.
The 25-year-old has been a crucial member of the Southampton side who are currently fourth in the table and have the best defensive record in the league. He has also chipped in with two goals and two assists for his side.
