21-year-old Chelsea defender Nathan Ake revealed Chelsea boss Antonio Conte called him into his office on the first day he arrived at Chelsea.
Ake insists age doesn’t matter to Antonio Conte as the Chelsea boss is willing to give youths a chance in the team.
“On the first day I was back, [Antonio Conte] called me into his office and explained the different positions he sees me in and what he expects from me when I play those positions,” Ake said.
“For him, age doesn’t matter. I just have to show him I’m ready to be here and that’s what I try to do in training. It was positive that he called me back and it gave me a lot of confidence.”
