Enzo Fernandez has revealed he joined Chelsea because of their reputation as serial winners.

The Blues are set to face Liverpool at Wembley this Sunday, for the 2023-24 Carabao Cup final, despite not enjoying a positive campaign in the Premier League.

Chelsea also go into the game as underdogs, but Enzo Fernandez, a World Cup winner with Argentina at 23, says he’s ready for the challenge.

“This is why I joined Chelsea,” the midfielder told the official Chelsea website. “It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world and always fighting to be top in the Premier League and competing in finals for trophies.

“It is a club that has to try to win everything. That is what it demands. It’s why I came here. I want to keep winning things in my career.

“To win this competition at Wembley would be really important. I want to win it, but it’s not just for me. I want to win it with this group. The group deserves this title because it’s not always been easy over the last 18 months.”

On playing at Wembley, Enzo added: “It has always been a dream to play there and I will feel very proud to play a final at the stadium. I will enjoy the experience and give my all so that we can win on that pitch.”
