Ji So-Yun to leave Chelsea Women after eight seasons


Ji So-Yun will leave Chelsea Women at the end of the season after eight years with the club and having helped the Blues to 11 trophies during that time.

The Chelsea midfielder will remain part of the squad as they continue to battle with Arsenal for the Women's Super League title, as well as a second successive FA Cup final against Manchester City on May 15, before heading back to South Korea to be closer to home following the end of her contract.

So far, Ji has scored 68 career goals at the club in 208 career appearances, with three matches left this season. The 31-year-old has scored 37 goals in the WSL.

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.

On Ji's departure, Emma Hayes said: "What an honour 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.
