Former Chelsea man, Emmanuel Petit has hit out at the club’s two summer signings Romeo Lavia and Moises Caicedo, saying they only joined the Blues because of money.
Petit insisted that Caicedo and Lavia should have joined Liverpool instead of Chelsea.
Lavia and Caicedo recently made headlines with their substantial moves to Chelsea, costing £55m and £115m, respectively.
Their decisions have raised eyebrows, especially when considering that Liverpool, who will partake in European competitions, were also signing them.
“Caicedo signed for Chelsea when he was linked with Liverpool, just like Romeo Lavia,” Petit told BettingSites (via FourFourTwo).
“I am not going to say anything stupid but we all know why they went to Chelsea. Sportingly, the best decision right now would be to go to Liverpool.
“If I am Caicedo or Lavia, I am going to Liverpool instead of Chelsea because I can’t see a clear plan for what is going on at Chelsea.
“Thirty-five players? Come on. How many players do they need? It is going to be a nightmare just like what happened last season.”
He continued, “For me, the answer is very easy. If you ask somebody why Caicedo and Lavia decided to go, the answer is just money. Money talks for the clubs and for the players.”
