“Don’t know why Chelsea let him go” – These fans react as former Chelsea starlet demonstrates how good he can be

Posted by

It’s easy to criticise a club for letting a player go when they suddenly start to excel somewhere else, but sometimes they’ve actually done the best thing for the player by letting them move on.

Tariq Lamptey is a classic example as it’s unlikely that he would play too much for Chelsea, so moving to Brighton has given him a chance to play first team football and he’s really starting to develop now.

He’s a fascinating player because his pace is ridiculous and it makes him hard to deal with from an opposition point of view, but it also allows him to recover in defence if his positioning lets him down.

He’s currently tearing Newcastle to shreds today – they genuinely cannot deal with him because of his pace and quality on the ball, so there will be a case of “what if?” from Chelsea.

Fans of multiple clubs have started to comment on his performance on Twitter, and many believe Chelsea have made an error here:

As well as his attacking instincts he’s also just saved his team by covering in defence and cutting out a ball that would’ve put a striker through on goal, so he really does look like one to watch this season.
