Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez is optimistic that the glory days will return to Stamford Bridge under the leadership of Mauricio Pochettino.

The World Cup winner Fernandez became the most expensive player when he secured a move from Portuguese side Benfica to the West London side in January for a reported fee of £107 million.

The Argentine joined a Chelsea side that struggled throughout the season and eventually finished 12th in the league standings, missing out on next season’s European competition.

However, Fernandez is confident that the Blues will be challenging for major honours in the near future with Pochettino.

In a post on his Instagram, the 22-year-old wrote: ‘Already enjoying the holidays with my family I can make a brief review of this wonderful year. First of all the family is getting bigger!

‘I lived brilliant moments in just one year. Very grateful to play for Benfica and I take the opportunity to congratulate all the Benfiquistas for the title!!

‘Then it was time to touch the skies with the hands having the opportunity to play in a World Cup for my country Argentina and a childhood dream became true by winning this such desired title,' he added.

‘I still had half a year and there was an opportunity to reach one more dream, to play the Premier League and fight for Chelsea! Happy and more than happy with everything we have experienced this year.

‘We are moving forward with the national team. We are moving forward with Chelsea that although the first semester was not as we all wanted, we know that this is a serious project with people who are looking for the best for the club and this year we will show it!!'.
