- Lucas Piazon claims he felt great at the beginning of the Chelsea career.
- The attacker believed he would get his chances at the club but he never did.
- The Loan Army veteran thinks that the Blues only consider him as an asset to earn some money.
"After a certain point the connection is no longer beneficial for both parties," Lucas Piazon, a long-term soldier of Chelsea's loan army, told Maisfutebol.
"At first, I felt really good. I went through the under-23s, got to the first team and, even in the first loans, I felt Chelsea had expectations and interest in me. I believed I could come back and have opportunities at any time.
"Later, as time passed, I became just another business for them. They send me out on loan with the expectation of selling me and making some money with me. I think that’s more or less what they think."
Once compared to legendary Kaka, Piazon joined Chelsea from Brazilian side Sao Paulo in 2012. The attacker has made just three appearances for the Blues so far, spending most of his career on loans at 7 different teams.
Chelsea's loan policy has always been a much-discussed topic as a lot of young talents have faced the same issues as Piazon over the years.
