Jack Grealish has posted a seven word message to Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour after his latest display for loan club Norwich City.
Gilmour, 20, is playing his football at Carrow Road this season after being loaned out by Chelsea to Norwich.
The Scotland international has had a slightly challenging time this season due to the fact he was frozen out by manager Daniel Farke. However, Farke’s sacking by the Canaries earlier in November has lead to a fresh start.
Norwich swiftly appointed Dean Smith as their new manager, who was recently dismissed by Aston Villa.
Smith reinstated Gilmour immediately to the starting line-up at the weekend for Norwich’s 2-1 win over Southampton, which lifted them off the bottom of the table.
Manchester City’s Grealish, who worked under Smith at Villa Park, posted a message to Gilmour after his performance at the weekend.
“Love it bro. Up the Deano Smith,” Grealish wrote.
Chelsea must be relieved
It’s been frustrating watching Gilmour struggling for minutes this campaign during his loan at Norwich, especially because he’s looked the part when playing for Scotland during international breaks.
Chelsea are well aware of how much talent the central midfielder has, so it’s vital for his development he’s playing regularly.
A managerial change has worked a treat for the Blues loanee.
He’s impressed in the Chelsea first team in the past, but the bar has been set extremely high if you want to break into the Blues midfield at Stamford Bridge.
Gilmour ready to shine
Norwich will have a boost in their hopes of Premier League survival if Gilmour starts playing like he can.
Norwich’s club captain Grant Hanley recently admitted the Chelsea-owned ace is often the best in training. Meanwhile, Pat Nevin is a big admirer of his, and feels he’s “central to everything” on the international stage with Scotland.
