Chelsea are being criticised this summer for selling a lot of their Academy’s players who have the potential to become football stars: between them, for example, Dominik Solanke and Bertrand Traoré.
However, defender Andreas Christensen, another of the players who played on loan last season, believes Chelsea and their youth system are working very well: “I’d like to think Chelsea’s academy helps yong players – Christensen told the Evening Standard -. Some people say that they just abandon you, that they don’t keep an eye on you, but that is definitely not true. “There is Eddie Newton and Paulo Ferreira doing a great job and they visited me quite a few times. They would also send me videos of my games, telling me where to improve. I always watched those videos, would take the advice on board and take it into the next game, even though sometimes I’d forget another thing. I got all the help I needed.”
