Chelsea send Cristian Cuevas back to Chile on loan

Quinn Rooney

I suppose this could be seen as a step backwards in Cristián Cuevas's prospects of ever making the Chelsea first team, but the 19-year-old is being touted as a reinforcement by one of the biggest clubs in Chile, which is something.  I guess.  It's certainly not nothing!

You're getting your money's worth with this report, let me tell ya.

He's got the arm-folding action down pat, which should come in handy for World Cup 2018 and the introduction of the Chile starting lineup on TV.

Cuevas has certainly racked up the miles since signing with Chelsea last summer.  He spent six months in the Vitesse reserves before switching to Dutch second division FC Eindhoven for the second half of the season.  He even scored a goal!  Then he went off to Turkey to the U20 World Cup with Chile, playing in four of the five matches (three starts) and taking home a red card as a souvenir.  Now, he returns to the motherland, though to a different club than from where we signed him (O'Higgins).  ¡Buena suerte!

And this concludes tonight's episode of Where in the World is Cristián Cuevas.
