Jonathan Panzo confident quitting Chelsea for Monaco right decision

Jonathan Panzo is confident quitting Chelsea for AS Monaco is the right career choice.

After almost a decade in Chelsea's academy, on the cusp of a professional contract, he decided a fresh start was needed. The time had come to move on.

“It was about opportunity, really," Panzo told The Sun.

Monaco is a big club for developing players from a young age and exposing them at a young age.

“Players like [Kylian] Mbappe, [Tiemoue] Bakayoko and [Benjamin] Mendy had an opportunity here and they took their chance.

“Hopefully Monaco can give me the opportunity to develop and be exposed to the world as well."
