Yossi Benayoun Returns to Chelsea After Completing Loan Spell at West Ham: The Daily EPL

yossi benayoun Yossi Benayoun Returns to Chelsea After Completing Loan Spell at West Ham: The Daily EPL

Israeli attacking midfielder Yossi Benayoun has completed his loan deal at West Ham United, and today has returned to Chelsea. Unfortunately he’s one of those talented players who has slipped off the radar despite playing for Liverpool, Arsenal and the aforementioned West Ham and Chelsea.

Benayoun may not be too happy about being shipped back to Chelsea. In 2010, Benayoun was asked why he joined Chelsea from the Reds. “Everyone asks me why I left Liverpool,” said Benayoun. “There is only one reason – Rafa Benítez.”

Not surprisingly, I don’t see him slipping back into the Chelsea side anytime soon due to the depth in midfield, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the Blues would be open to offers for the talented footballer. Hopefully he doesn’t get stuck in the reserve team or on the bench for the remainder of the season.
