New Chelsea striker Raheem Sterling has expressed confidence that the West London club can win the Premier League title, next season.
The England international who joined Chelsea from the reign Premier League Champions, Manchester City in July, said he looks forward to adding more silver wears to his cabinet, with the Blues next season.
The forward made this known in a chat with Chelsea TV on Thursday, July 21.
Recall that the former Manchester City star made his debut in the team’s 5-3 penalty shootout loss to Charlotte in today’s preseason’s friendly in US.
Asked by Chelsea TV why he wanted to play for Chelsea, he said: “Seeing in the last two years it’s four or five finals that you guys have been in, the progress, you won the Champions League and are now looking to challenge for the Premier League, it’s something that intrigued me when I was having a conversation with the club.
“Seeing the direction that you guys are going in, it’s something I really bought into and I just felt it is a place where I can really come into my own. I just think it’s the perfect platform for me.”
He continued: “The club’s already got that winning mentality but to keep doing it every single year and keep winning more and more trophies and building on the previous season, I think that’s what top managers like Thomas [Tuchel] do.
“It’s not one year win and next year rest, it’s again and again and again and that’s what excites me to be here. It’s the challenge ahead and to win more trophies.”
