Ex-defender sends positive message to Nathan Ake after Chelsea’s win at Wolves

Frank Sinclair has singled out Nathan Ake for praise after the defender's performance in Chelsea's 2-0 win at Wolves

Frank Sinclair has praised Chelsea defender Nathan Ake for maintaining his impressive performances after returning from his loan at Bournemouth.

The Netherlands international started as part of Chelsea’s back three for their trip to to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday evening.

Indeed, Ake helped Chelsea to keep a clean sheet as Antonio Conte’s side were 2-0 winners against Championship outfit Wolves, who beat Liverpool in the previous round.

The 21-year-old versatile defender impressed during a loan spell at Bournemouth earlier this season before Conte brought the Dutch starlet back to Stamford Bridge.

Former Chelsea defender Sinclair took to Twitter to congratulate Ake on another impressive performance.
