Cahill to leave Chelsea with “head held high”

Gary Cahill is preparing to leave Chelsea this summer.

The experienced centre-back has fallen down the pecking order under Maurizio Sarri and he is obviously not in the manager’s plans for the future. He has recently criticized the Italian with rather sharp words, describing him as a man that’s hard to respect. Sarri responded by revealing that Cahill’s words were of no interest to him, indicating that their relationship has gone beyond the point of no return.

The defender described his final season at the club as “terrible”, one that he would try and erase from his memory as soon as he left the club, and added that his last memory of the club would be winning the FA Cup last season.

Cahill arrived to Chelsea in January 2012 from Bolton Wanderers, and he won the Champions League that year with them. He later added the 2013 Europa League to that, two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and one League Cup. He has been named in the PFA Team of the Year three times.

“I’m ready to go and I leave this club thankful to all the players, staff and fans who have helped me so much, and I go with my head held high,” he said.
