Chelsea Women midfielder Ji So-Yun is set to leave the club eight years after she joined. She has helped the Blues lift 11 trophies during her time at the club. The South Korean will hope to leave on a high as they battle for the Women’s Super League title and the FA Cup final against Manchester City. She scored 68 goals in 208 appearances for the club. She has also won five WSL titles, including the Spring Series, lifted the FA Cup three times as well as two Continental Cup wins and one Community Shield victory.
“What an honor and a privilege it’s been to coach one of the most amazing players the WSL has ever seen. There’s no question she’s been the most successful player from outside our league,” Chelsea Women head coach Emma Hayes said about Ji So-Yun. “Ji’s helped the club grow on and off the pitch and she’s a fabulous character who will be sorely missed. I will miss her terribly and I’m so grateful for everything she’s done for everyone at the football club. We are in a much better place because of it.”
“Chelsea thanks Ji for the long and successful service she has given the club and wishes her all the best in her next chapter. We look forward to giving Ji a big Blues send-off at our last WSL match of the season at Kingsmeadow next Sunday,” the club said in a statement.
