According to the report on Complete Sports, Kenneth Omeruo explained that Chelsea's finance to buy top players prevented him from wearing the Blues' jersey on the pitch.
“I think it’s quite difficult (to play for the first team), mostly because Chelsea is a massive club, who have the finance to buy the best players.
''And I think from a market strategy it makes more sense to buy a player from Juventus, who has been hyped
“But, sometimes it’s not about the quality like I have been consistent with the National team since 2013, which means I must be doing something good. Aina (Ola) left Chelsea, went to Torino, He was bought back – to Fulham in the premiership.''
