19-year-old Chelsea youngster spotted in first-team training under Frank Lampard before Bournemouth game
Carney Chukwuemeka, a Chelsea youngster, has been sighted in first-team training ahead of tomorrow’s game against Bournemouth.
The midfielder may be viewed in the club’s image collection on the 5th Stand App.
Mauricio Pochettino already wants to build his Chelsea side around 29-year-old
Chukwuemeka, who was one of the first outstanding kids to make the move to Stamford Bridge when Todd Boehly took over the club, has had a difficult season overall.
The 19-year-old did not play under Thomas Tuchel before the manager was fired, which irritated the owner following the big-money signing in the summer.
Graham Potter made opportunities more plentiful, even starting a crucial Premier League game against Manchester City in January.
However, since Frank Lampard took over the club, there has been more of the same patient waiting, which will annoy, especially considering the lack of importance remaining in the games.
Chukwuemeka is undergoing training.
There have even been claims that the young Englishman has been impressing in training, even though he is regularly kept out of the team entirely on match days.
Some supporters may be encouraged that Chukwuemeka is training only days before the club’s Premier League match against Bournemouth.
The team has now lost six games in a row under Lampard, with their most recent defeat coming against Arsenal.
Should Kylian Mbappe leave PSG this summer ?
The only bright spots in that game were the performances of Noni Madueke and Mykhailo Mudryk, both of whom were struggling for minutes.
This should urge the interim manager to turn to players like the former Aston Villa midfielder to help restore some of the positive vibes at Stamford Bridge.
