Raheem Sterling names one Chelsea player he has “good connection with” already

Raheem Sterling has given his first proper interview as a Chelsea player, after his first game in Blue.

He spoke about how he was settling in at a new team – pointing out that he already had a good relationship with several of the players from years of England duty.

I know a few of the boys from the national team, Mase (Mason Mount), Chilly (Ben Chilwell), to name a few,” Sterling said in an interview with the Daily Telegraph.

“I’ve got a good connection with Callum (Hudson-Odoi) already.”

That’s promising – the two of them could be linking up down the flanks pretty soon if CHO ends up playing regularly as a wing back – something we saw in the first half of our friendly last night.

Sterling’s connection with the players goes beyond actions on the pitch though, and clearly there’s a lot of behind the scenes chemistry and connections which matter a huge amount too.

“Of course, playing against each other you always speak to players on match day and it’s always been a group that even if it’s been a tackle or something, it has been a good feel. They’ve welcomed me really well and I feel at home already.”

This group doesn’t have long to gel, so it’s great news that some of the have a connection both personally and professionally. A few weeks in the very warm and welcoming Thomas Tuchel environment will hopefully help everything go especially smoothly.
