Defender describes Chelsea as his ‘second home’

There is a real feel good factor and glowing confidence around Chelsea right now that seems to be seeping through the squad on the whole.

They have a good chance of winning both the FA Cup and Champions League still this season as well as getting top four.

The players are playing with confidence, and there has been one in particular who has been like a totally different player since Thomas Tuchel took the reigns in January.

It is easy to often forget that this guy has came through the Chelsea academy, but Andreas Christensen has been superb since he started in the absence of Thiago Silva some weeks back, and he’s really nailed down his regular spot in this team.

This is why it is even more refreshing to hear him talk about Chelsea, a club he has been at for over the last ten years, as his ‘second home.’

As reported by The Telegraph, Christensen said:

“I feel like this is my second home. Denmark will always be my home, but Chelsea will always be my place.

“I’ve been here almost nine, 10 years. I’ve never doubted my decision (to be at Chelsea) and I’ve always been here for the long run. I accept that the club sometimes changes managers a lot and that can make it hard to always be in the team.

“After the loan spell (at Borussia Monchengladbach), I came back and played well, and since then it’s been a bit in and out. But it’s nice at the moment to play back-to-back games and my confidence is growing.

“My confidence hasn’t always been my problem. It’s just sometimes I’ve been in and out and then, with new managers, I’d be in and then out again, it has been difficult. But I feel like every time I get a few games back-to-back, my confidence grows and I get into the team’s rhythm which makes it easier.”
