Christensen had a lot to say about the loan move to Gladbach and was one of 38 players sent on loan from Stamford Bridge last season.

The Dane started in 62 games in the Borussia Monchengladbach loan all as a 21 year old. But he tells all that he was carefully watched over by the Blues during his two-year spell at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Many people say that the Blues will just abandon you and not check up on you, but Christensen says that that is entirely untrue.


Chelsea caring

He has described how they make him a better and tougher player rather than abandoning him. He has kept saying that it is wholly untrue that his parent club is failing young players in their loan system.

Christensen had loan technical coach, Eddie Newton, and assistant Paulo Ferreira visiting him quite a  few times and sending him videos of his games telling him where to improve.

In the 2016 and 17 years Christensen in Bundesliga has made 31 starts in 2,782 minutes, scored two goals, won 47 tackles, made 19 fouls, and had one yellow card.

“Christensen says he feels better able to compete in the Premier League following his stay with Gladbach. He came back to Chelsea a better player after two years and 80 games and two seasons later than when he started,” according to the

He is coming back with greater mental and physical toughness and still has things to build on. Physically, for example, he has some things to improve on.


Better mentally

However, mentally the stay at Gladbach has given him a lot.

He feels more confident and ready for greater things and was up against a lot of big teams and top strikers. Gladbach added toughness, but he’s now claiming to be learning a lot of new stuff by way of Chelsea team mate Luiz who also likes to play football from the back.

Christensen went to Germany from London in summer 2015 and showed up only 3 times for Chelsea. “He comes back with 80 games in all competitions and has been capped 12 times by Denmark at the international level,” according to the
