'I'm loving it': £20m Chelsea player says he's seriously enjoying playing under Graham Potter right now
Carney Chukwuemeka has claimed he’s loving life at Chelsea right now.
Chukwuemeka, who’s experiencing his debut season with Chelsea, moved to Stamford Bridge last summer in a £20million (Sky Sports) deal from Aston Villa.
The 19-year-old midfielder has had to be fairly patient for his opportunities, but he’s been introduced to the side more frequently since Graham Potter took charge as head coach.
He enjoyed his first start for the Blues during the weekend’s 1-0 win against Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
A confident Carney Chukwuemeka
Chelsea’s teenage midfielder has spoken very positively about his mood right now, giving a special mention to Potter.
It certainly sounds like the English talent is enjoying playing under the Blues manager.
“I’m loving it at the minute. I feel so confident in myself. With help from the gaffer and the players, who as a young player are helping me, I’m just building my trust in my own game as well,” Chukwuemeka said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“That’s helped a lot. I’m loving it at the minute and long may it continue.”
Chukwuemeka, who was recently rated as the 10th most exciting teenage footballer in the world, is starting to make inroads at Chelsea.
The attacking midfielder is definitely earning the trust of Potter with his game time increased post-World Cup.
There’s loads to love about the youngster’s game with his physical and technical quality, something that really stands out in someone his age.
If he keeps bringing confidence on the ball when he plays, there should be more chances for him to impress moving forward.
It’s been a rocky start for Potter at the beginning of his Chelsea career, but one big tick against his name is the way he’s introduced youngsters.
