Ethan Ampadu made his Chelsea debut in yesterday night’s Carabao Cup game against Nottingham Forest, as he entered the fray in the second-half.
The highly rated teenager joined Chelsea from Exeter during the summer and turned 17 last week.
Ampadu, who only signed a professional contract this week is now the first player born in the new millennium to play for the Chelsea senior team.
He was born on the 14th of September 2000, and featured as a second-half substitute in what was his Chelsea debut against Nottingham Forest.
Speaking of his performance, Conte said: “He’s another youngster who has the potential to become a good player but he must continue to work with humility and improve. We must be pleased tonight because we saw a lot of our young players in this game.”
