Cole Palmer takes us through his penalty against Manchester City
Former Manchester City player, Cole Palmer earned his spot in the England national team ( Three Lions) following his fantastic performance at Chelsea since he move to the capital.
The 21-year-old was speaking to the English press for the first time as a member of the Men's senior team. Cole Palmer was asked about his thoughts when Chelsea was awarded the penalty against City.
"When I saw the ref give it I thought, it is my time, I spoke to Raz (Raheem Sterling) and was like, I wanna take it. When I put the ball down I just picked a spot and put it there. I wasn’t nervous, not really. I have always tried to believe in myself."
He also spoke about his decision to leave the Cityzens despite winning the treble ( UEFA Champions League, FA Cup, Premier League) just a few months before deciding to join the Blues.
"It was a big move for me, I have never been out of Manchester, not even on loan or anything. So to move down to London on my own was a big thing. When I first went down there it was difficult. I was staying in a hotel but now I have settled in more and I am enjoying it. It happened fast. I thought for my career I had to go and get regular game time. The competition that’s there at City, it was going to be hard."
Palmer has been an integral part of Chelsea since he joined the club during the 2023 summer transfer window. He has scored five goals and four assists since he joined the London club.
