Chelsea U18 created history yet again as they beat Manchester City 5-1 to become FA Youth Cup champions for the fourth time in a row.
Antonio Conte and Roman Abramovich were in attendance during the emphatic victory and they both had smiles on their faces as the Blues went on to produce a very dominant display against the young Citizens.
Conte was happy to have Abramovich in attendance for the game. He said: “We [Conte and Roman Abramovich] watched the game together, it is always good to see Mr Abramovich and enjoy the game and to see our team to win for the fourth time in the row. It was good. It is very important for Chelsea the work in the academy.”
He also revealed that he has spotted four or five Chelsea youngsters that could climb their way up to the senior team.
“It is working very well, I think in this team I saw four or five players with a good prospect for the future. It is not easy for them to become a Chelsea player for the first team. It is not easy this gap, it’s not simple just at Chelsea, but lots of teams. We must be proud of the academy, in o squad we have four players with our academy, Ruben, Chalo, Ake, and Aina. I think it is great this,” Conte said.
