As someone with Chelsea in his blood and a winning mentality etched in his mindset from a young age, Reece James believes the club’s aims will not waver next season despite the impending change of ownership at Stamford Bridge.
Uncertainty has surrounded the club in recent months, but hopefully a fresh start will be confirmed soon, and full focus can return to matters on the pitch. That was where James once again shone over the course of the 2021/22 campaign, even if injury meant he did not play as much as he, his manager or the supporters would have liked.
Despite the upheaval Chelsea still finished with two pieces of silverware to our name, and so nearly two more. It is that competitive instinct that gives James confidence next season will be no different.
‘It’s been a strange moment for the club with the change of owners, it’s going to be different moving forward, but our ambition is still going to be the same,’ he stressed.
‘We are a massive club in the world, and our aim is still going to be to win every trophy we can. The players at this club are ambitious. You’re playing at this club for a reason. The quality is so high.
‘No matter the owner, we are the ones who go out and perform on the pitch. Next season we are going to have many competitions to play and hopefully get some more trophies under our belt. We’ve got enough quality so there’s no reason why we can’t do it.’
