Ethan Ampadu left Chelsea fans begging for him to return to Stamford Bridge after his masterclass against Tottenham.
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.
Incredible statistics show the impact of the 19-year-old during RB Leipzig’s 1-0 win in the Champions League, as the Welshman had the most touches of the ball, completed the most passes, made the most interceptions and had the highest pass accuracy of 95 per cent.
He only made one tackle, but Tottenham’s attack without Son Heung-min and Harry Kane struggled to test Leipzig’s defence, and after the game, fans toom to social media to urge the club to bring the young man back and give him a chance next season.
One excited fan said: Wow
Another chipped it with: Bring him back now
Another put: Spurs torn apart by Future star
Another added: See you next season Ethan.
Ampadu recently stated that he is hoping to play enough this season to earn a move back there for next season, 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.”
