Chelsea teen Kakuta crashes back to reality in Blues second string defeat

24 November 2009 03:00
Two days after sampling the adulation of more than 40,000 at Stamford Bridge, Gael Kakuta was back in action last night in far more humble surroundings.

Eighteen-year-old Kakuta made his Chelsea debut on Saturday in the 4-0 defeat of Wolves, his first appearance for the club since a four-month ban imposed by FIFA for his illegal transfer from Lens was suspended pending an appeal.

Last night, however, the French teenager was playing for the reserves who lost 2-1 against Birmingham at Brentford's Griffin Park.

Good start: Kakuta made his debut for Chelsea in the 4-0 win against Wolves

Nevertheless, 18-year-old Kakuta, who was today named in the squad for tomorrow night's Champions League clash against Porto, is hoping for more first-team chances.

He told Chelsea TV: 'I have been waiting so long and I am really happy, I enjoyed playing the game (against Wolves).

'My fitness is good. Because of the ban I have been out for months but I haveworked double sessions every day and I feel good.

'It has been a little bit like pre-season because when the boys finished I was still in, working in the afternoons.

'[In the Premier League] the game is much quicker, you have more choice when you play, you can play one touch, two touch, so it is much better.'
