Jadon Sancho has discussed idolising Chelsea duo Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba – and some of the Blues supporters on Twitter are extremely excited about his comments.
Borussia Dortmund attacker Sancho has been on record several times to reveal he supported Chelsea as a child, which is why many fans want him to end up at Stamford Bridge.
According to the Telegraph, the 19-year-old is one of the players that Frank Lampard’s side are interested in signing after their transfer ban ends.
He is a skilful right-winger that has taken the Bundesliga by storm in recent time and also forced his way into Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
The speed machine has four goals and eight assists in 16 Dortmund games across all competition so far this season.
Sancho has named two Chelsea icons as two players he used to look up to, which has caused great excitement from a selection of Blues supporters on social media.
“Ronaldinho was the main guy I used to watch on YouTube,” he said. “But I liked Frank Lampard quite a lot and Didier Drogba when they were playing for Chelsea. They were the three players I looked up to,” Sancho told the Independent.
Lampard returned to Stamford Bridge in the summer as Chelsea boss and he’s leading an exciting turnaround at the club.
He’s had the club’s academy at the centre of the team’s success so far and there is a strong young English core leading the way in the first-team.
Sancho looks like he could be tailor-made for Lampard’s side with his pace and skill, but would compete alongside the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Willian and his ex-Dortmund teammate Christian Pulisic if he did move to West London.
Here are some Blues fans reacting to Sancho’s comments:
Jadon Sancho wants a bit of Frank Lampard Chelsea don’t he……. #cfc
