Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, when asked about the development of Ruben Loftus-Cheek at Stamford Bridge so far, said: “We trust a lot in him. I don’t want a loan for Ruben, I don’t want this. I want him to stay because he’s ready to play for the first team. If he shows me that he wants to play, he knows he plays”.
When asked about Conte’s words, the U-21 starlet told the club’s official website: “At my age I just want to be playing so for him to say he wanted me to stay gives me confidence that the chances will come, and when they do I just need to make sure I take them”.
“I look to improve and learn as much as I can, and it doesn’t matter to me which position, I’ll always give my best”.
