If I asked you about Gael Kakuta many of you will question why we signed him with all that fuss in the first place. It will be announced shortly that he has signed for Seville for a reported six million Euros.

For those appearances in a Chelsea shirt which were few and far between, it was obvious he has natural talent. Unfortunately for Chelsea and Kakuta, he never reached the levels expected here and spent the majority of his Chelsea contract playing elsewhere. 

Many will argue that Kakuta is a shining example of the club not giving someone a chance in the first team but we do not have access to how he trains behind closed doors. There is a saying in football "If you are good enough, your old enough" and many of us will question what happened. 

What hasn't helped Kakuta at Chelsea is now the demands from the Owner and the Board season in, season out. You only have to look at the season we won the Champions League, we finished sixth in the Premier League which in any normal season would be totally unacceptable. Chelsea MUST finish inside the top four without fail anything less would be deemed as a disaster. 

Look at Carlo Ancelotti in his second season at the club after an historic double in 2009/10. He was asked to bring through some of the youngsters to replace first team players who had left such as Ricardo Carlavho and Deco. As we moved into the winter months with the team struck by injuries and suspensions, the youngsters provided us with a real lack of squad depth  we lost at home 0-3 against Sunderland and Roman Abramovich acted swiftly. We haven't seen the youngsters afford the same game time at Chelsea since we flirted with danger five years ago. 

It's going to be the same with any of the youngsters coming through. I cannot see a clutch of them being integrated together at the same time, maybe one or two but that will be it every season. 

Gael Kakuta suffered with what happened under Ancelotti in that second season and ever since, he has been nowhere near getting back into contention. 

For someone who has fantastic ability it has all come down to timing. He found himself here at the wrong time. Now, he gets a permanent move to Seville in La Liga and the chance he has always craved. 

It's such a shame that was never at Chelsea!
