Chelsea already posses the next David Luiz
The young Welsh is capable of playing at both centre back and holding midfield positions and he was highly rated in the lower divisions due to his versatility in recent seasons.
Ampadu made his debut for chelsea in their 5-0 win over Nottingham Forest last Wednesday, he came in the second half, the tough-tackling defender wastes no time to introduce himself with a crunchy tackle.
Coleman is keeping an eye on Ampadu for a future role in the Wale national team and he insists chelsea has uncovered a gem, who has the potential to be like David Luiz, according to Coleman “He’s very similar to Luiz. If you look at his style of play, he’s a stylish centre-back or holding midfielder. He’s very good on the ball, excellent in possession but he’s a good defender as well. It’s the same.
For someone so young he reads the game really well and that’s what is really attractive for a club like chelsea. Ethan was always going to end up at one of the big clubs. It’ll be up to him whether he is going to come through at chelsea. Looking at him now, he’s showing all the signs of being a top-level defender”.
Ampadu, however, seems ready to bid his time at the club and will trust Conte’s instructions and training to be a better player in the future.
