Aina ready to fight for Chelsea place, as Blues land Perth for pre-season


Nigeria International, Ola Aina and his Chelsea teammates have arrived Perth, Australia ahead of the commencement of the pre-season.

Aina was on loan to Hull City in the English Championship last season, but will hope to convince new Boss, Maurizio Sarri he can be valuable to the squad.

The Chelsea academy graduate was the only Nigerian International to travel with Chelsea, who also have Victor Moses and Kenneth Omeruo on their books.

Chelsea confirmed 25 players travelled for the first game on pre-season, where the Blues will face Perth Glory on Monday at the Optus Stadium.


However, neither Moses nor Omeruo made the trip down under due to their participation at the World Cup with Nigeria, but are expected to join up with the rest of the team in the coming days.

Chelsea new Manager, Maurizio Sarri will take charge of his first game in the friendly against Perth Glory on Monday, 23rd July.
