Victory born at Cobham for Chelsea
Roman Abramovitsj bought Chelsea in 2003. The Russian billionaire invested a lot of money in the team, trying to get the best players to the club. When you keep buying the best players in World football, you will eventually get success. But Abramovitsj also knew he couldn’t keep buying the most expensive players if he wanted to stay longterm at the club. That’s why he decided to build a new state-of-the-art complex in Cobham. This became Cobham Training Ground. The place where Chelsea wanted to create their own stars.
Chelsea’s own stars do the magic
When Chelsea started to build Cobham training ground in 2005. Some of the players that started for Chelsea against Juventus today were 5 and 6 six years at that time. The owner probably can’t be any prouder than he was today. Chelsea and Juventus were both already qualified at the start of this match, but the Blues played a very good match. They beat Juventus with 4-0, three from the 4 goals were made by Cobham graduates. Defender Trevor Chalobah opened the score in the 29th minute. Early in the second half Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi tripled the lead in quick succession. Timo Werner scored the 4-0 in the last minute of extra time. A great victory by Chelsea which brings them the first spot in Group H.
