Viral Video of the Day: Chelsea Reject Rips Volleyed Goal for Fenerbahce

Remember when Miroslav Stoch played for Chelsea? Me neither.

Here's something you probably won't soon forget: That's former Chelsea player Miroslav Stoch blasting a wicked volley into the net for Turkish club Fenerbahce last weekend against Genclerbirligi.

Stoch, as you may recall only if you're a diehard Chelsea supporter, was on the books with the Stamford Bridge club between 2006 and 2010. The Slovakian forward/winger appeared in just four league matches during that time and scored zero league goals.

Considering the mess Chelsea currently find themselves in, it's a decent bet they wish they had a goal scorer like Stoch around now.

Stoch, now 22, left Chelsea for FC Twente on loan in 2009, then moved permanently to Fenerbahce in 2010. At the international level, he's represented Slovakia 28 times, scoring four goals.

The video of Stoch's goal has already gained some traction online, with British newspaper Metro picking it up on Monday. Metro asked whether Chelsea would regret losing Stoch:

Ingenuity and freshness are just some of the traits currently missing at Stamford Bridge, and Stoch’s strike embodied both of these qualities in one swing of his right boot.

Will Chelsea rue they day they let this man go?

As for the game itself, Stoch scored another goal as Fenerbahce beat Genclerbirligi, 6-1. The victory pulled Fenerbahce within six points of league-leading Galatasaray.
