Young Chelsea fullback Dujon Sterling has been performing well while on pre-season, and the 21-year-old is proving to be an undoubted talent so far.
According to Goal, the 21-year-old fullback has impressed in training and has caught the eye of the Chelsea manager as he is now set for a new contract.
Having performed well against Christian Pulisic in indoor games, Dujon Sterling has admitted that he’s pleased with himself to do well against such a top class player.
Sterling said: “When you come up against top players, world-class players, Champions League winners, that’s how you want to be tested, to have the chance to compete at that level,” as quoted by Chelsea’s official website.
“I thought I did well, especially against Christian! Personally, it was just good to get the run out and keep building up fitness.”
He also spoke about his partnership with another Blues winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, having grown through the ranks with the Chelsea No. 20.
He added: “It was good playing with Callum (Hudson-Odoi), I gave him a little assist as well. It was good especially because we played with each other a lot coming up through the age groups.
“We know each other’s games really well and the timing of when to run, when to play it, so the movement is just natural to us now.”
