Ben Chilwell has revealed Frank Lampard has told him the could become the best in the world at Chelsea.
Chilwell was linked with so many clubs at the beginning of the transfer window that no-one could tell where he would go, but at the end of the day, we were the club that swopped in and managed to secure a transfer deal.
And Chilwell revealed the extent of his conversations with Lampard before choosing to make the switch to Stamford Bridge in the summer on that five-year contract.
“It is a fresh challenge. I am out of my comfort zone which is something I think that will improve me,” the 23-year-old told the club website. “It’s a great team, a great club and I am looking forward to working hard here.
“I remember chatting to the gaffer at Leicester and he was really good about the whole situation. He said this would be good for my career and that if I come here and work hard, I can push on because the type of football here suits me.
“He said I could go onto be the best or one of the best in the world in my position. That’s what I want to do now I am here. I want to win stuff and improve myself.
“Personally, I want to become one of the best in the world in my position, and it feels like, with this team, that we can win a lot over the next few years as well. When I come to the end of my career, I want to have won everything that there is to win, and I think that at this club we can do that.”
He will become one of the very best in the game and a player that has added a bit more quality to the back-line
