'It's not even a competition': Raheem Sterling names 21-year-old as the quickest player in the Chelsea squad
There’s certainly some speed demons in Graham Potter’s current group, especially when you look to the forward line.
Sterling, 27, has proven throughout his career he’s no slouch. In particular, he’s absolutely rapid over the first five yards.
Elsewhere, a lot of Blues fans may look towards the likes of Christian Pulisic, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Kalidou Koulibaly when picking out the very fastest at Stamford Bridge.
However, 21-year-old Broja is apparently the sprint king.
Broja fastest in Chelsea squad
When asked by BT Sport who’s the fasted in the Chelsea squad, Sterling responded: “Armando. It’s not even a competition.”
Sterling, who’s been with this group for a few months now, has given a fairly concrete answer.
Broja, another success story from the academy, does have the raw pace and energy to frighten defences.
The centre-forward isn’t starting games regularly yet for the Blues, but he’s shown several times this season an ability to change the momentum with his presence.
As a hungry young striker, it would be great to see the Albania international get some more minutes on the pitch to try flourish.
Let’s hope Chelsea fans get to see Broja tearing it up on a match day a bit more during the rest of the season.
There’s so much to admire about his game with his pace, strength and energy.
Potter’s role is to help mould the academy graduate into the finished article, which is going to happen with more experience and maturity.
