Ethan Ampadu: learning from the pros


Young Welsh international Ethan Ampadu played the whole match for Chelsea in the 2-1 win over Bournemouth, and impressed.

Starting in the centre of defence, the 17 year-old enjoyed the chance to learn from the experienced pros around him.

‘They [ Cahill and Rudiger] are excellent pros and that only helped me,’ said Ampadu after the 2-1 win. ‘The way they were speaking to me, talking to me throughout the game just helped me.

‘I was pleased with my performance. On the ball I was just moving it, keeping it simple and just trying to grow my way into the game, but in these kinds of games it is always about getting through to the next round and thankfully we did that.

‘The manager giving you a chance, it gives you confidence that he has trust in you and when you perform you just need show what you can do.’

Ampadu is also using first team training as a chance to pick up some good advice.

‘You see how professional some like Azpi is for example, how he plays so many games and how he takes care of himself, you just try to learn off a player like that,’ he said.
