It’s nearly been a year since Michael Hector’s surprising deadline day move to Chelsea and the bewilderment is yet to cease.

In fact, the 24-year-old’s career took another curious twist when he joined Eintracht Frankfurt on loan from the Stamford Bridge side. It proves, rather incredibly, the thirteenth loan spell of his seven-year career.

However, the Jamaican hasn’t got off to the most desirable start in the Bundesliga and certainly won’t have Antonio Conte itching for his return.

Nightmare start

Despite the opportunity to showcase his abilities in one of Europe’s top five leagues, it’s fair to say Hector has choked in the limelight.

The Chelsea loanee experienced his Frankfurt bow in the first round of the DFB-Pokal away to FC Magdeburg. However, it proved a debut to forget as Hector saw himself dismissed for a second yellow card in the 100th minute of a tight affair.

Thankfully for the new signing, his side hung onto victory as they sheepishly progressed via a penalty shootout.

Hector was given the chance for redemption less than a week later though, but this time in the Bundesliga. Improbably however, his match day ended exactly how it had done during his inaugural fixture.

The 24-year-old received his marching orders even swifter this time with a straight red card being brandished. Having rashly tackled Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, when he was clean through on goal, Hector was sent off for the second consecutive game.

Once again his teammates managed to hang on and limp to a 1-0 win, but their Jamaican acquisition only served to endanger this.


Cumulatively, it paints a worrying picture for Hector and his future at the highest level of the game.

Given the circumstances under which Mourinho signed the centre-back in the first place, Chelsea would have been monitoring him skeptically regardless. Consequently, Hector’s start in Germany will have heavily wounded his already questionable chances at Stamford Bridge.

The Jamaican may well go onto improve at Eintracht, yet as far as first impressions go, they’ve proven nothing but negative.
