Chelsea defender hailed as the Danish Maldini and the greatest of all time

Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen had a very awesome season last term with Chelsea as the Blues won the Champions League.

The Danish centre-back will surely not be forgotten for his outstanding performance in the final against Manchester City as he came on as a first half substitute in such a high profile match and slotted in seamlessly.

Christensen took his form to the Euros where he excelled as his side reached the semifinal of the competition.

This season, the Dane hasn’t put a foot wrong as well as he has been brilliant for both club and country.

While on international duty with Denmark, Christensen played in all three games and his side kept a clean sheet in those matches.

Chelsea fans have taken to social media to hail the form of the 25-year-old as they called him the Danish Maldini.

@Rom81203147 : “Rolls Royce Danish Maldini is playing tonight. He has been exceptionally good since TT took over #coboham keeps winning #cfc ”

@IamOlili : “Our very own Danish Maldini. The greatest Danish defender of all time.”

@LondonBluePod: “Congratulations to the Danish Maldini!”

@donlfields : “We all knew John Terry’s heir would also come from the academy. The Danish Maldini would build his own legacy, the name Andreas Christensen would be used to refer to future generations of talents. Take a bow @ABChristensen96 PS: Signed that contract.”
