Chelsea's forgotten player has got fans talking with a series of clips posted to his Instagram story.

Malang Sarr did not play a single game for the first-team last season, with Mauricio Pochettino not even recognising him as a member of his squad.

The Argentine responded by saying, "Who?" when asked about him in a press conference in August.

After a deal with Le Havre fell through, Sarr was forced to train with the Under 21 side and he had to get changed with the youngsters after his first-team locker was taken off him.

Sarr's last game at senior level was over a year ago at Monaco when they played Reims in March 2023, and his most recent Chelsea outing was on the final game of the 2021/22 season.

Yet the 25-year-old may well be given a fresh start under new boss Enzo Maresca, who has penned a five-year deal.

As shown on his social media, Sarr has already been putting in the work ahead of pre-season.

On his Instagram story, he posted several videos of him putting in the work.

Last year he was involved in pre-season to begin with him but was then left out of a tour of the United States and then omitted from the Premier League squad by Pochettino.

But after a period in limbo, the France youth international is earning plenty of admirers for the lengths he is going to.

One wrote: "Malang Sarr redemption arc incoming! You heard it here first

A second said: "Hope he can get his situation sorted out, I'm all for the jokes but I hope he can get his career back on track somewhere.

A third agreed: "Seems like a good guy to be fair, hope we can find a new club for him this summer and he can just get on with his career."

Another simply added: "My glorious king!

A final person commented: "He’s prob not good enough but don’t think he’s done anything to warrant completely being shunned out."

Sarr still has a contract until 2025 and reportedly earns £100,000-a-week.
