Richard Olise signs new contract with Chelsea

Posted : 22 May 2024

Chelsea have officially announced on their website that Richard Olise, the younger brother of Michael Olise who was invited to the Super Eagles in 2021, has agreed to a new contract with the club.

The promising defender has committed his future to Chelsea by signing a one-year contract extension, which also includes an option for an additional year.

Originally, Olise's contract was set to expire this summer, but Chelsea has acted proactively to ensure the right-back remains with the team for at least another year.

Despite being promoted to the U21 squad on a permanent basis this season, Olise struggled to secure a regular starting position, managing only 14 appearances across all competitions throughout the recently concluded season.

In the Premier League 2 playoff semifinal against Tottenham, Olise came on as a second-half substitute for Josh Acheampong. Unfortunately, Chelsea lost, missing the chance to secure a title under coach Mark Robinson.

Olise has been with Chelsea since he joined as an Under-9 player and has steadily progressed through the ranks. He debuted for the U18 team during the 2021/2022 season and continued to play with them until the 2022/2023 campaign.

Due to limited opportunities with the development squad, Olise featured in only one U18 Premier League match last term. He now aims to gain more playing time with the U21s in the upcoming season.
