Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has backed 21-year-old Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen to be a Chelsea player for many years and emulate Chelsea legend John Terry.
“This is a big comparison [with Terry]. But I think [Christensen] has the right characteristics to play for this club for many years, to become an important player for this team, for this club,” Conte said.
“I wish Christensen to have the same career as John. I think Chelsea have found a player who can have the same career as some of the best defenders here.
“When you start to play for a great club like Chelsea, for sure the future is yours. He’s a serious person, always committed in training sessions. He doesn’t speak a lot. He prefers facts to words. I can predict a fantastic career for him.”
