Ruben joined the Blues back in 2004 and his level of determination to the club so far even made him pen another contract in July 2019 even while still struggling with injury.
“I was injured at the time [of signing my new contract] – I came off the back of a good season with Chelsea when Sarri was here,” Loftus-Cheek said
“It was my highest-scoring season. I played a lot more games and I felt like a Chelsea player who had contributed to winning in that season.Embed from Getty Images
“So to get injured was a blow and to be honest I didn’t think I would be injured for so long. I didn’t think it would take a year for me to come back.
“So that was in my thoughts when I was signing my contract. But it obviously didn’t happen like that. I’m devoted to Chelsea.
“I’ve been here since I was seven years old. After the season with Sarri, there was no reason for me to leave Chelsea.”
