Romanian striker Adrian Mutu moved to Chelsea for big money and he started his career at the club on the right path until things went downhill for him amidst a lot of controversies. Adrian Mutu was not far from the newspapers for the wrong reasons most times during his stay in West London. His transfer has been rated as one of the worst under the Roman Abramovich reign according to an article from English publication Football London.

Chelsea signed Adrian Mutu from Italian Serie A side Parma at the start of the Abramovich revolution at the club in 2003. The Blues had paid £15.8m to secure his transfer from Parma and the player would leave the club in the following year. Read the rest of this entry »

Former Chelsea star Adrian Mutu has urged the Blues New boy Romelu Lukaku to up his game and have a great first season at Stamford Bridge. Lukaku is back at Chelsea where he was as a young lad after having a career with several clubs in the English Premier League and one in Italy. Before rejoining Chelsea this summer, the Belgium international striker played for West Bromwich Albion, Everton, and Manchester United in England but was deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford by United manager Olé Gunnar Solksjaer who sold him off to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan during the summer transfer window of 2018.

After joining Inter Milan, Lukaku became an even better player and began to score goals for fun in Italy. He was one of the best players in the division last season and was only outscored by Cristiano Ronaldo who was at Juventus until this summer after also sealing a transfer away from the Italian League.

There have been a lot of transfer stories in the past where footballers would have to reject or decline the offer made by one club in favor of accepting another one from a different club and a lot of players have, in the past, confirmed that they have had to turn down a contract offer from one club just so they could accept the next available offer. While some players give reasons like they thought the accepted offer was the right one at that moment, others would, even though they rarely mention it, choose to go for the deal that would see them earn more money than the other one.

It does happen though bit it is only on rare occasions that players would decide to turn down a big-money move to a club in favor of a transfer to another club where they would earn a relatively lower salary because they “only want to play football”. One of those players who have now revealed how they had a change in their career path by snubbing one club for another is former Chelsea player Adrian Mutu. Mutu may not be remembered as one of Chelsea’s best players ever because of the sort of career he had at Stamford Bridge but he clearly wished he had a more successful career with the Blues.

Former Chelsea player Adrian Mutu has been looking back on his career lately and has been making some revelations about his best and worst moments during his time at Stamford Bridge. Mutu was one of those players that were signed by Chelsea that would eventually not go on to fulfill their potentials to the fullest, and he has now admitted that it was a difficult time for him as well. Upon completing his move to join the Blues, a lot of expectations were placed on Mutu to become a shining star at the club because of how very talented he was and how he was able to showcase some of his skills on the pitch.

However, his case was further proof that excelling in the English Premier League is not always an easy task even though you’re coming to the league as a top player from another country. After signing his contract with the Blues, even before kicking a ball, Mutu was already a fams’ favorite and they already started showing him some love and support. But after his first few appearances in a Chelsea shirt, his name that was once echoed by the fans began to slowly fade away from their mouths.

Before a club signs a player, there’s always a 50-50 chance even before the transfer is done. It’s usually either the player hits it big at the new club or flops. Although sometimes it usually takes time before the player gels with the team and blends into the playing style of his new team, other times, it just usually either does not work, or the player would not be able to perform up to expectations or targets.

Every club has a list of players they have signed that have gone on to not only meet expectations but even surpass them, but they also have that list they’re not willing to bring out when transfers are being talked about. This list is the one that contains the transfers that they would wish they never initiated in the first place.

                           The Rise And Fall Of Former Chelsea Star Adrian Mutu

February 26th, 2021

Romania as a country is not popularly known for breeding top players but when it does, the player would surely make headlines either as a sublime talent, a temperamental player, or a stubborn one.

Players like Nicolae Dobrin (in the ’70s), Ilie Balaci (in the ’80s), and Gheorghe Hagi who played for the country in the’ 90s were all Romanian superstars and will all live long in the memory of Romanian fans as some of their best players. Read the rest of this entry »
