A number of Chelsea young players including Jeremie Boga have had a run out in the Chelsea’s pre-season friendlies.
Ahead of the new season, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed he would be willing to give young players the chance if they are strong, ready and good enough to play for Chelsea.
”Around young players there is always a great debate but in this pre-season I think every young player’s attitude was very good,” Conte told Chelsea’s official website.
“But when we go back to Cobham I have to take the right decision to see what is best for the team, the club and the young player.
“I don’t think it’s changed in football. It’s always the same.
“Young players have had the same difficulty in the past.
“I can tell you one thing: if a young player is good enough, strong enough and ready, then why not?
“I played my first game at 16 in Italy, but I played with Lecce and we were fighting to avoid relegation, I wasn’t playing for Juventus and fighting to win the title.”
