Nathaniel Chalobah made an impact since he joined Chelsea‘s first team last season following a Serie A spell with Napoli.
“I’ve learned every day, - he said – From [N’Golo] Kante, his work rate and defensive quality – he just got better on the ball as the season went on – [Nemanja] Matic, for his composure and passing, and Cesc’s passing and ability to pick up passes”.
“It’s a very high standard at Chelsea, the club has an amazing academy and produces really top players. It’s just there’s that barrier of getting in there – and then staying in there.”
The England Under-21 star, who will face Germany in the U-21 European Cup semi-final added: “You’re playing for one of the best teams in Europe – they’re now back in the Champions League – and the demand is high on winning”.
“We won the league and I have competition from European Cup winners, World Cup winners and full internationals. The manager Antonio Conte’s tactical awareness, his passion and desire to win all rub off on everyone.”
