Chelsea fans blast club’s recruitment policy

How good was Michael Ballack by the way?

Chelsea managed to secure the midfielder’s signature on a free transfer in 2006, and he went on to make 166 appearances for the Premier League club – scoring 25 times in the process.

In terms of value for money and indeed contribution to the cause, few signings in Chelsea history match up to Ballack.

Chelsea took a trip down memory lane on Tuesday when they posted that it had been 10 years since the German arrived in the English capital.

As expected, a number of the Chelsea supporters took to Twitter to hail the now 41-year-old, but there were also plenty that took the chance to blast their club’s recruitment policy.

Indeed, a number of the team’s recent signings just have not worked out, and the club will be absent from the Champions League next season after failing to secure a top-four position in the Premier League.
