Chelsea have a big array of wonderful younger abilities coming by the ranks on the membership proper now, however there’s at all times that one or two gamers that stand out above the remainder and actually make you sit on the sting of your seat.
After all we can not watch soccer proper now as a result of Coronavirus pandemic, however I’ve been conserving a really shut eye on the progress of Academy striker Armando Broja.
I’ve additionally been utilizing this time to return and have a look at his video games, his model of play, what he does nice, and what he can enhance on.
The 18-year outdated has already caught the attention of first staff boss Frank Lampard sufficient for him to have included him in current first staff squads, and Chelsea have additionally lately signed him to a brand new and improved contract on the membership. They understand how good he’s, and so do I.
He jogs my memory of a basic model all spherical centre ahead, an actual quantity 9 who has the flexibility to be a bully as soon as he absolutely develops bodily, but additionally has the technical capability to do be greater than only a menace to defenders.
He’s nearly 6ft 3in tall already and can nonetheless be rising. He must construct himself bodily slightly extra and grow to be a lot stronger on the ball. However when he does that, he has all of the qualities to be a very dominating centre ahead who will present nightmares to defenders for a very long time.
However as I touched on, he isn’t nearly his peak, he is a good ball participant and has nice positional consciousness already. He can play off the final man, draw defenders large and drop in and hyperlink up with midfielders. However most of all, he’s a deadly finisher and a pure objective poacher.
Broja has a really excessive ceiling, and it will likely be clever to start out introducing him into the primary staff much more over the approaching months when soccer returns!
