Andreas Christensen will be a Chelsea player for the next 15 years, reckons Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
Christensen has forced his way into the starting XI at Chelsea after returning from a two-year loan spell at Borsussia Mochengladbach.
“He’s going to be there for the next 10 or 15 years,” Gerrard said on BT Sport.
“What the manager has done is obviously known he’s been on loan for two years.
“He got player of the year in Germany, which is an excellent achievement for a player so young.
“Conte was probably looking at players in pre-season and he has stood out.
“He was given his chance and he’s taken it.
“To impress an Italian manager, as a defender at 21 years of age, and stay in this Chelsea team… you’ve got to give the kid an awful lot of credit.”
