Former Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has revealed that Chelsea coaches have spoken very highly to him about the future of Chelsea youngster Tino Anjorin.
Schwarzer told Match of the Day Live: “I spoke to one of the coaches before the game and they spoke very highly of him (Anjorin).
“They expect a lot from him, but on the night he was quiet.”
He also praised the fact that Chelsea have a manager who has created a channel for these young players to break through.
He said: “He’s a player like Chelsea have had over many years; lots of talented young players coming through the academy. The biggest difference is, under Frank Lampard and since the transfer embargo, these players are getting opportunities which is great to see.”
Anjorin was part of five academy players chosen to train with the senior team over the past week, and was the only one of them named in the substitute list. He eventually came on as a late sub, with about ten minutes left.
Anjorin made his full Chelsea debut in the Champions League tie against Krasnodar, and has now played in the Premier League, Champions League and both Cup competitions.
