Wales manager Chris Coleman sees a lot of similarities between Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu and Chelsea defender David Luiz.

Just as Luiz, Ampadu is comfortable playing as a central defender or in a midfield role. The 17-year-old also share the same big hairstyle with Luiz.

Ampadu made his Chelsea debut in Wednesday’s 5-1 Carabao Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

“He’s very similar to Luiz,” Coleman told Wales Online.

“If you look at his style of play, he’s a stylish centre-back or holding midfielder.

“He’s very good on the ball, excellent in possession but he’s a good defender as well. It’s the same.

“For someone so young he reads the game really well and that’s what is really attractive for a club like Chelsea.”
