Chelsea decided to loan out Trevoh Chalobah once more this season, with the 20-year-old joining Huddersfield Town for the 2019-2020 campaign.
The Terriers have just dropped down from the Premier League, but after a poor start to the season, Huddersfield have already opted to make a managerial change.
Danny Cowley has come in as manager to replace Jan Siewert, who was sacked after just three games of the Championship season.
Chalobah, despite the poor start the club has faced, has actually made a very positive impact on the pitch, becoming an important player for the Terriers over the last few weeks.
He performed expertly in the games that Mark Hudson was in as caretaker, and has all the attributes to be an important part and a driving force of this Huddersfield Town midfield.
It’s a big year for the youngster, seeing how Frank Lampard has opened the doors to youngsters like Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, he’ll know that there’s now an opportunity to play for his parent club in the near future, but he must perform.
This loan is now crucial for the player, having spent last season out at relegated Ipswich Town, he won’t want to face the same fate again during his time at the Terriers. It’s vital that Cowley sees him as a key part to his side and that he can help Chalobah’s confidence.
Chalobah will know that the appointment of a new manager at Huddersfield was a big moment for his young career, it’s unknown whether new boss, Cowley, will see him as one of the key players to his side or whether he’ll opt for more experienced heads in the midfield.
That’ll worry both the player and Chelsea, but he needs to get his head down and show Cowley that he’s the man for the Terriers. If it doesn’t happen, then he really needs to weigh up his options and think about his own personal future, he can’t improve without playing games.
There will be a big moment this Sunday when Cowley announces his first lineup as Huddersfield Town manager, and Chalobah will be hoping that he will be in it.
Chelsea have a good player in the youngster, but in order to improve and become better he has to hope that Cowley sees him as a viable option for his preferred game plan and style.
