Armando Broja is definitely going to be a successful player in this game. From his cameo appearances at the club, it was so easy to spot his talent.

The 19-year-old striker moved on a season-long loan deal to Netherlands side Vitesse, and he has been very impressive.

With two assists in the Dutch league, Broja has one of the best goals to minutes ratios for a teenager in Europe, and he sees Didier Drogba, Cristiano Ronaldo and the Brazilian Ronaldo as his icons.

However, Broja has admitted that he has learnt a lot from training with Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud.

Speaking about training with Chelsea’s first team, Broja said: “You can tell the tempo straight away.

“Everyone was at the top of their game. You learn from some of the best. You develop even by watching them. I learned how I can get past this defender or that defender. I’d watch things Giroud or Tammy Abraham did. We’d do a shooting drill and I’d pick up little movements.”

Broja has also admitted that he’s keen to follow the paths of the Chelsea youngsters who have broken into the first team.

He added: “You see Mason, you see Tammy, you see Fikayo Tomori, you see Callum Hudson-Odoi.

“I was a small kid watching them on the youth team and now they’re in the first team. I want to get to the level they’re at now.”
