Dennis Wise provides verdict on Chelsea loanees
- Blues legend and former Leeds United manager has his word on Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman who were loaned by Leeds for this season
“It’s not about them two it’s about the whole team,” he exclusively told Starsport. “They’ve got quality because they’re at Chelsea it’s as simple as that.
“It’s the same as what Derby have done, they’ve brought quality in, young players. It’s not about these young boys, the quality boys that have come from Chelsea to Leeds and the quality boys that have come from Chelsea to Derby as well.
“You don’t really want to put pressure on these boys and I think it’s a collective thing that has to happen and not just about boys that have come from Chelsea. And I think it’s a learning process for them as well and I think it’s getting them to the next stage.
“Chelsea are looking to develop them and going there and being able to play in front of 30,000 and competing and showing what they’re capable of. So that’s what it’s about for Chelsea and I don’t want to put too much pressure on these young boys that are going into the Championship saying they could make this difference and they could make that difference to Leeds.
“I think it’d be very unfair to say that, they’re at a learning curve in their careers.”
