Eddie Newton talks about Chelsea’s loan army; regrets ex young threesome


Former Chelsea assistant Eddie Newton lifts the lid on him

Newton discusses the origin and success of the ‘loan army’ system

Former Chelsea assistant and loan manager Eddie Newton has lifted the lid on Chelsea’s acclaimed – and infamous – loan system that has long taken root at Stamford Bridge.

Newton, a multi-cup winner in Blues midfield who spent nine seasons at the club, once oversaw the ‘loan army’ that continues to gather in West London.

When speaking to Goal’s chief correspondent in Chelsea Nizar KinsellaNewton first gave his opinion on the origin of the club loan policy;

It was working, but it was not a developed system. Basically, it was the brainchild of Michael Emenalo (former Chelsea manager). He took me to his office and said: ‘Look, Rafa [Benitez] He’s a bit worried about having you because you were with the last coach (Roberto Di Matteo). ‘

So I wasn’t going to be with him on the first team, but he had another job for me to develop and run the loan program. He said we had too many young players who were too good for the U-23, but not good enough for the first team.

The department started with just me and an analyst. We worked and went to watch games. So the list of players on my turn got too big and I couldn’t keep doing it.

We developed the feedback we gave to the players and improved our organization with other clubs. When Michael left, I was involved in the loan negotiations before it went to Marina. [Granovskaia]. It was something that we built and that I was really proud of in the end.

We created a world-class show that I know many other people are copying today. Many clubs came to us and asked us for a little help, we helped them improve their game and it is fine. You can only have the secret for a moment! “

Regrets the three biggest names in the Chelsea system

Despite the true list of players who have been through Chelsea’s loan program and development system, three names stand out above the rest; Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah.

The three players failed to build long-term futures at Stamford Bridge, but the triumvirate eventually became the spearhead in their respective positions as their careers flourished elsewhere.

Jose Mourinho

Newton wasted no time in mentioning the players’ relationships with José Mourinho as one of the main reasons why both De Bruyne and Salah did not work at Chelsea;

For me, I think Salah and De Bruyne were not about talent. It was a clash of personalities [with Jose Mourinho]. I just didn’t think it was working at the time.

I think they were good enough, but it was the manager who disagreed with them, so it wasn’t going to work. “

But Newton spoke differently about why Lukaku had to wait seven years and score 177 goals in stints at Everton, Manchester United and Inter Milan before finally getting a chance to be the main man at Chelsea;

For Lukaku, he wasn’t ready at the time and I don’t care what others say.

I just wasn’t ready to be the main No. 9 up front and carry that platform like Didier [Drogba]. They were always going to compare him to Didier and it wasn’t fair to him at the time.

It was different situations for different players. “
