Moises Caicedo breaks silence after horror Chelsea debut following £115m British transfer record move from Brighton


MOISES CAICEDO confessed he had a nightmare debut for Chelsea following his record transfer.

The Ecuadorian midfielder, 21, completed his £115million move from Brighton to the Blues last week.

And he got his first minutes under Mauricio Pochettino as a second-half sub away at West Ham yesterday.

But his half-hour display did not go to plan.

Not only did he fail to help his new side find an equaliser against the Hammers as he came on with Chelsea trailing 2-1.

But the £115m man enabled Lucas Paqueta to wrap up the three points in the London derby by sliding in on Emerson to give an injury-time penalty away.

Paqueta’s finish added to goals from Nayef Aguerd – who was later sent off for a second yellow – and Michail Antonio, either side of Carney Chukwuemeka’s equaliser and Enzo Fernandez’s missed penalty.

And Caicedo took to social media to share his thoughts after his horror Chelsea start, which was blasted by fans online.

Caicedo wrote on Instagram: “It wasn’t the debut that I expected but I’m happy to get my first minutes with this big club.

“We’ll keep working hard to put this team where it deserves.


“Thanks to the fans who are supporting me.”

Plenty of his new team-mates flooded the replies with messages of support.

Fernandez wrote: “This is not how it starts, but how it ends. Let’s go all out brother! We will all work together.”

Injured captain Reece James added: “Together as one.”

Goalscorer Chukwuemeka simply said: “Together.”

Marc Cucurella typed: “Let’s go up man.”

And Christopher Nkunku, another big-money summer arrival, posted strong arm and fire emojis.

Caicedo looks set to make his home debut at Stamford Bridge in Friday’s clash with Luton.

Chelsea then host AFC Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup and face Nottingham Forest in West London on September 2 before the international break.
