Defender opens up and officially tells Lampard he wants to be at Chelseas next season
Ethan Ampadu is keen to resume his Chelsea career next season but only after helping RB Leipzig achieve their goals this campaign.
The Wales defender is on a season-long at the Bundesliga club from Stamford Bridge and after a defensive crisis has found himself finally getting some games, and he is really taking his chances over in the Bundesliga and putting in some very impressive performances.
He started in Leipzig’s 1-0 win at Tottenham in the Champions League last 16 first-leg clash – and once again, he was impressive against one of the best sides in the premier League and against a team that managed to make it all the way to the final last season, noow he is looking to play some more games this season and has admitted that he is hoping to resume his career back at the Bridge
He said on the Sun website: “I am always watching Chelsea and seeing what is going on. It is good to see the young players are shining at the moment.
“They are in the top four so fingers crossed they can hold on to that.
“I would like to go back, I aim to, but right now I am focused on Leipzig and finishing the season.”
Ampadu was part of the Leipzig defence that kept Spurs at bay and earned a clean sheet despite a couple of shaky moments in the first half.
“I have not played as much as I would have liked to but I am definitely learning in training and working hard,” he added.
“When this situation came of starting tonight I knew it was a good opportunity to show what I can do and I’d like to think I’ve done that.
“I just tried to play my game. I try to be composed and just try to play.”
