Bolton loanee admits he had to leave Chelsea

The 20-year-old decided to join Bolton on loan instead of a return to Fulham, following talks with striker Daniel Sturridge who spent time on loan with the Wanderers last season.

“When you’re young you have to be patient because you have big players at Chelsea that have lots of international and club experience,” Kakuta said.

“There were about seven or eight players in front of me with experience and that is the reason I came here.

“We will see what the coach (Andre Villas-Boas) will do, whether he will keep everyone or move some players.

“But I need to play as I am 20 years old. I need to get some experience and not play just 20 minutes a week.

“Bolton is a great club. I chose to come here because I think it is the right place for me to come to improve.

“I was supposed to go to Fulham and at the last minute Chelsea told me Bolton were interested.

“I asked Daniel how Bolton was and he said the people here were great and I would enjoy it a lot.

“He said the coach (Owen Coyle) gave him a lot of confidence. If he trusts me and gives me confidence I will be able to do my best.

“It will be a great thing for me to go back to Chelsea with more experience as the coach will trust me more at the weekend and I will be more of a first-team player.”
