Chelsea defensive midfielder featured in last FA Cup win against Tottenham Hotspur replacing captain Gary Cahill.
The Dutchman was helped by teammate David Luiz on the pitch, as he told Chelsea’s official website: “He’s a really good guy and he helped me a lot. Before the game he spoke to me to make sure I was okay”.
“He said he was going to help me and that we’d do it together. On the pitch we talked a lot and helped each other a lot”.
Then Ake added: “The way he plays, with the ball and without the ball, he can do both sides of the game. He can tackle but he can also play out with both feet and I think I can take note of that, I’m learning from him every day”.
