Chelsea Star Worked as a Model Before Starring in Thomas Tuchel’s 3–0 Win Over Crystal Palace

  • Trevoh Chalobah finally broke into Chelsea senior team this season and has already scored once in two appearances
  • The defender failed to satisfy the interests of other previous managers and was sent on loan to different clubs
  • While waiting to make his debut for the European champions, he worked as a fashion model for an Italian company

Trevor Chalobah may have sealed his place in Thomas Tuchel's squad with his stunning goal against Crystal Palace over the weekend.

The 22-year-old launched a long-range shot from 25-yards out in the Blues 3-0 win in their opening league game at Stamford Bridge.

Chalobah was also part of the team that edged Villarreal out on penalties to win the UEFA Super Cup earlier this month - meaning he has made two appearances for the west London club.
