Antonio Conte sends clear Chelsea advice to Ethan Ampadu
Antonio Conte offers clear advice to Ethan Ampadu after his impressive performance for Chelsea against Bournemouth
Antonio Conte has told Ethan Ampadu that he now has to stay “calm” after another solid performance for the Chelsea first team on Wednesday night.
The 17-year-old played for the full 90 minutes as the west London side secured their place in the last four of the League Cup thanks to their 2-1 win over Bournemouth.
Ampadu has been getting used to life at Stamford Bridge after signing for the west London side from Exeter City in the summer transfer window.
Conte has been delighted with what he has seen from the teenager in a Chelsea shirt so far this season, with the youngster now having made four appearances in all competitions for the first team.
The Italian manager was thrilled with Ampadu’s impressive performance on Wednesday night but warned the youngster to keep his feet on the ground.
Speaking at his post-match news conference, Conte said: “Now he has to stay calm. Maybe next game he goes to play with the youth, but this player is very humble and he could have a great future. He has to continue in this way.”
Chelsea are now preparing for their crunch Premier League clash against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday lunchtime.
The west Londoners head into that game in third place in the Premier League table and 14 points behind leaders Manchester City after 18 games of the new campaign.
Chelsea won the Premier League in Conte’s first season at the club last term.
