Swiss defensive midfielder Denis Zakaria has revealed that the Blues pumped the Reds to his signature on transfer deadline day, with a completed loan move from the Bianconeri.
What did Denis Zakaria say?
Swiss player Denis Zakaria was keen to find a way out of Turin when the summer window shut up and attracted a lot of late interest from England. Denis Zakaria found himself on his way to Anfield at one stage as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp found himself in the midfield reinforcements market, but a deal for the season with Premier League rivals Chelsea was eventually agreed.
On the move of the reds and being blue not red, Swiss international Denis Zakaria said he heard it from his agent, but it ended up being Chelsea. According to Denis Zakaria, everything happened very quickly. Denis did not know that a move to the Blues was possible until six hours before the end of the transfer window.
The Swiss player thinks he will be happier in England than in Turin. It’s hard to say what went wrong in Juve. According to Zakaria, maybe the style of football was not his. The team was far behind, did not have such a large space. He is a player who needs a lot of space for his runs. Denis Zakaria says he’s better off in England.
