Chelsea U18 coach Jody Morris share his satisfaction after leading the young Blues to win their fourth Youth Cup in four years, the sixth of the past eight editions.
Morris’ kids obtained their success after winning 6-2 on aggregate on Manchester City:
“The big players turned up for us when we needed them to,” Morris told the official Chelsea website after the game.
“Winning breeds winning and we’re lucky enough to have a first team that set the standard in that respect. We’ve had teams before us in this competition that have performed and won on many occasions so it’s nice for us to emulate them and with some special performances at the Bridge against Tottenham and Man City as well.’
On the game, he said:
“We started quickly but the most pleasing thing for me was that we finished our chances.
“We’ve been cursing often this season that we should have scored more goals in games but we put them away at the most important time. We knew City had to come forward to chase the game and we’ve got players that can hurt teams, which we did.”
Morris and his guys are also in the race to win the U18 league:
“The reason we’ve done so well in every competition and improved game after game is because we put such a focus on our league results. We’ve been on fantastic unbeaten runs and beaten records this season because we expect to win every game. That has definitely played a part in us winning the Youth Cup again but we want to finish the job in the league now and win on Saturday.”
