Barkley’s roller coaster ride from prodigy to complete player

From overcoming a potentially career-ending injury as a teenager to turning into one of England’s hottest prospects as an Everton prodigy, to resurrecting his career at Chelsea and becoming an integral part of the team as a "complete" player, Barkley’s endured it all. He is finally starting to meet our high expectations after a tough first half-season, as the club’s change in management seems to have awoken the 24-year-old’s true potential. While any comparisons to a certain legendary predecessor in the Chelsea No.8 shirt are far too premature, Barkley’s brilliant start to the season and recent heroics against Manchester United and Burnley certainly warrant a look at the player’s journey in football thus far.
