Pep Guardiola on Cole Palmer's bright start to Chelsea career

Pep Guardiola has offered a cold response to Cole Palmer’s encouraging Chelsea debut.

The Man City academy product joined Chelsea this summer in a £40million deal to seek a fresh challenge as he warranted more game time in his career.

Since joining Mauricio Pochettino’s side, Palmer has been involved in five goal contributions in eight Premier League matches and made one of the most valuable additions to the squad this summer.

Palmer will face his boyhood club tonight since his move and Man City manager Pep Guardiola has no regrets over selling one of the brightest English prospects.

But the Catalan manager has congratulated the English midfielder on his impressive start at Chelsea.

“Congratulations for Chelsea and him,” he told reporters.

“Really pleased. The reason why was that, he wanted game time. He has it, so congratulations. He is a guy who came from the academy, he’s having success because it’s good for him and wish him the best.”
