We won 12-0, I scored 9 – Broja reveals why he joined Chelsea
Chelsea attacker, Armando Broja, has revealed the reason behind his decision to join the Blues from Tottenham Hotspur.
Broja impressed last term on loan at Premier League club Southampton, scoring six goals in 32 matches.
The 21-year-old has featured in six matches across all competitions for Chelsea so far this season.
The Albania international joined Chelsea in 2009 after a two-year spell in Tottenham’s academy.
He made his debut for Chelsea in the 2019-2020 campaign.
Speaking on his decision to join Chelsea from Spurs, Broja told The Players’ Tribune: “I remember going to a tournament. The Tottenham [Hotspur] scout actually came to watch another boy.
I happened to obviously play well in that tournament, and I got top goalscorer and I got the best player at the tournament, so they approached my mum and dad before I even knew about it.
“We moved over to the other side of the pitch and played the other team.
“We won 12-0, I think, and I scored 9. Straight after that, the two Chelsea guys came over and said, "Wow, we want you."
“When they said that, I did not think of anything else. I just wanted to join Chelsea."
“So eventually that obviously did happen, and I joined Chelsea at the end of U9s, the start of U10s, so I have been there since then.”
