‘Night to remember’: Chelsea loanee posts on Instagram after Thursday display, Billy Gilmour responds
Chelsea loanee Tino Anjorin uploaded a message on Instagram after his heroic cameo performance on Thursday night.
Anjorin, 19, is a highly rated attacking midfielder to come out of the Blues academy.
The English teenager was sent out on loan in the summer to Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow, who are set to give him more first-team minutes to help his development.
He made his debut for them last weekend in a league match, but really announced his arrival to the Lokomotiv Moscow fans last night.
Lokomotiv Moscow played at home against French opponents Marseille in the Europa League group stages this week.
They were heading for defeat when they conceded a red card and penalty in the second half, with Cengiz Under converting the spot-kick for the visitors. However, Chelsea loanee Anjorin provided the heroics from the bench.
He scored an 89th minute equaliser for 10-man Lokomotiv Moscow. The youngster curled in a superb low finish into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
Anjorin sent a message on social media after his goal, with another Chelsea loanee Billy Gilmour replying in the comments.
Tino Anjorin one for Chelsea fans to watch closely
Anjorin was a part of the first-team squad under Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel last season, so there is every reason he should believe he can carve out a career at Stamford Bridge.
The creative playmaker has five Blues senior appearances under his belt already, but a loan move for the 2021/22 campaign looks a great decision.
It’s great news that he’s getting the opportunity to play European football.
It may be difficult to keep track of every player out on loan from Chelsea, but he’s one of the few that realistically can make it at the Bridge with his talent.
