Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed Chelsea are working hard to develop young players to build for the future instead of spending vast amounts of cash on big-name players.
“As you can see, we are working a lot also with, for example, [Ethan] Ampadu,” Conte said.
“He’s only 17-years-old. [Andreas] Christensen is only 21-years-old. [Tiemoue] Bakayoko is only 23, [Davide] Zappacosta only 25.
“We took a lot of young players. With Christensen, we are trying to develop the young players of the academy.
“I think we are doing a fantastic job. We are trying to build something important with work – not with words or money.”
