THE EXCLUSION OF CHELSEA FORWARD ARMANDO BROJA FROM THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SQUAD EXPLAINED IN DETAIL
Chelsea announced their Champions League ahead of the opener against Dinamo Zagreb. However, the announcement has caused quite a stir on social media. The Blues aim to be the team that challenges for the title. Their main aim will be to dethrone Real Madrid from the Champions League. Hence, Thomas Tuchel will be looking for top-notch performances from the whole squad.
However, Chelsea made headlines before the tournament starts. One of the biggest names missing is their young forward Armando Broja. Broja in recent days has signed a new long-term contract. Hence, his exclusion surprised many fans. However, fans do not need to take tension. According to numerous reports, Armando Broja is there in the B squad like Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliot of Liverpool.
WHAT DOES HIS INCLUSION IN THE B SQUAD MEAN FOR THOMAS TUCHEL AND FANS?
The Blues will face Dinamo Zagreb, AC Milan, and RB Salzburg in their Champions League group. However, they are the favorites to top the group. Both deadline day signings in the form of Denis Zakaria and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang are also there in the list. Hence, if they are fit and their work permit is sorted, they could be in line for their debuts for Chelsea.
