Juan Cuadrado unable to explain Chelsea struggles

Juan Cuadrado admits that he does not know why he struggled to produce his best form for Chelsea.

Juan Cuadrado has admitted that he was surprised by his struggles at Chelsea after making a loan switch to Juventus earlier this week.

Much was expected of the Colombian winger when was signed from Fiorentina in the January transfer window, but he was unable to secure a regular starting spot in Jose Mourinho's side and was sent back to Serie A for the season following Pedro's arrival at Stamford Bridge.

"What went wrong? The truth is, I don't know," the 27-year-old told reporters. "I was always professional and I always trained very well. I didn't play as much as I wanted, but I was always ready.

"Moving to Juventus was the best choice for me and I hope to give my best, and give everything for this shirt. It's a new challenge for me. I've always been training, even if I wasn't playing, and I always train with playing in mind."

Cuadrado could make his Juventus debut against Roma on Sunday.
