'At Chelsea It Was Really Good' - Fulham's Aina Has Fond Memories Of His Time At Stamford Bridge
In their last Premier League outing, Fulham put up a solid performance against Tottenham Hotspur, holding the north London club to a 1-1 draw despite the late schedule change.

On a personal level, Super Eagles defender Ola Aina impressed for the Cottagers and was praised by the commentators during the game.

The Torino loanee is a key member of the Fulham defence that has conceded three goals, two from penalties, in their last six matches across all competitions - none of which they lost.

Scott Parker's team next face Chelsea at Craven Cottage, a game Aina is looking forward to due to his connection with The Blues.

The Nigeria national teamer spent twelve years at Chelsea before sealing a permanent move to Torino in the summer of 2019.

Speaking to Fulham's official website, Aina said : "I will always have fond memories of Chelsea, going through the academy, managed to be in a few first team squads, managed to play a few games for the first team.

"At Chelsea it was really good, enjoyed there, made some lifelong friends there both players and coaches."

One of Aina's good friends, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is unfortunately ineligible to face his parent club but Aina is available for selection and he's admitted that being a London derby, it has added extra spice to the game.

The Fulham number 34 added : "Of course, London derbies are always something to relish and for me it just added that little spice to it just because it's my old club and I've got a lot of friends there.

"It will be a good challenge to be up against my old club and my old teammates. To see how far I've come since leaving Chelsea, it will be good to get a good game. "

Aina totaled six appearances for Chelsea, including three in the Premier League, before leaving the club.
