'Forget that we own him': Some Chelsea fans hailed 22-year-old's CL performance last night
Chelsea supporters waxed lyrical about Malang Sarr after his sterling showing for Porto in yesterday’s Champions League victory over Juventus.
Sarr, who is on loan at the Portuguese champions from Chelsea, came off the bench to aid his current side’s epic European conquest yesterday evening.
Porto lost the game 3-2, but managed to steal a priceless away goal deep into extra time that secured their place in the quarter finals.
There was wild commotion from Chelsea fans following Sarr’s contribution, who loved seeing him knock out Cristiano Ronaldo and co.
Although Sarr rightly gained some recognition from the Blues faithful, it would be totally justified if they had overlooked his performance entirely.
The 22-year-old was easily the least flashy of Chelsea’s six summer signings last summer.
Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva all stole the show respectively.
Whilst they strode into Stamford Bridge, Sarr was forced to find ends meet elsewhere.
After a brief period in limbo, he joined Porto on a season long-loan in October.
So far, the left-footed central defender is yet to completely convince his current employees.
He has started 15 times for Sergio Conceicao’s side, but only six of those have arrived in the Primeira Liga.
The majority of the Frenchman’s efforts have been saved for the Champions League, where he’s made six appearances.
With so much activity going on back at his parent club, Sarr’s Chelsea future is still up in the air.
But he won’t have harmed his case by keeping Ronaldo under lock and key.
