Chelsea's Longest Serving Player Is Leaving The Club

Chelsea's Longest Serving Player Is Leaving The Club

It's a sad, sad day for Chelsea fans as their current longest-serving player is leaving the club.

After legendary skipper John Terry left the club in the summer window following a 22-year stint at Stamford Bridge, it meant that 25-year old Croatian goalkeeper Matej Delac became the longest-serving player despite never playing a game for them.

Delac was announced as a Chelsea player back in 2009 after impressing for Inter Zapresic. However, his career with the Blues hasn't gone to plan, as it comprised of him being sent on loan nine times and failing to make a competitive appearance for the club.

His only time in between the sticks for Chelsea was a friendly in 2014 where he played just over half a game.

Now, it's been confirmed that after nine loan spells, the legendary Delac is leaving. He's penned a two-year contract with AC Horsen in the Danish top-flight and will join up with them in the summer.

Eight years of wonderful service at Stamford Bridge sadly comes to an end.

He leaves having never played for the Blues, but did have loan spells with Vitesse Arnhem (of course he did), Dynamo Ceske Budejovice, Vitoria Guimaraes, former club Inter Zapresic, Vojvodina, Sarajevo (twice), Arles-Avignon and Belgian outfit Excel Mouscron.

Speaking about his situation back in November in an interview with Goal, he said work permit issues derailed his progress.

"The problem was not my quality, Chelsea believed in me, extended my contract several times, but the problem was always work permit," he explained.

"Chelsea had a plan for my career, but you can not plan some things. As I arrived, aged 18, it seemed like some movie, I can't describe that feeling. I will remember the greatness of Chelsea FC, they raised me and taught me human and football manners

We're looking forward to watching his testimonial match...
