‘He’s Our Missing Link’ ‘Better Than Rudiger’ Fans Praise Chelsea Star Who ‘Bossed The Game’ For His National Side

‘He’s Our Missing Link’ ‘Better Than Rudiger’ Fans Praise Chelsea Star Who ‘Bossed The Game’ For His National Side

Chelsea’s Ethan Ampadu played at centre-back for Wales in their 1-0 win over Finland last night, and it has prompted talk over whether the 19-year-old could be utilised in defence by manager Frank Lampard this season.

The Welshman has generally played in midfield for his country and it was interesting to see him excelling in a different position. Some fans on Twitter think Ampadu could be a solution to the Blues’ problems at the back:

Ampadu spent last season out on loan at RB Leipzig but he struggled to get game time at the Bundesliga club. He started just two matches under manager Julian Nagelsmann.

However, he would be an interesting alternative to the likes of Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen who have all shown they have weaknesses in their game.

Partnering Ampadu with the experienced Thiago Silva would be an intriguing prospect, and supporters will be keen to find out who Lampard favours as his strongest centre-back pairing.
