Andreas Christensen has developed into a top class centre-half for Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel, as the 25-year-old played a role in helping Chelsea win the Champions League last season.
The Dane also performed at a high level for his country during the Euro 2020 tournament, and he has started this season in bright form as well.
Christensen has been praised by many for his recent form, but Denmark captain and AC Milan defender Simon Kjaer, who has seen Christensen develop over the years, believes that the 25-year-old can be the best defender in the world if he can become a more vocal presence at the back.
“I think he has all the prerequisites to become the world’s best defensive player,” Kjaer told BOLD.
“He reads the game completely uniquely. He is fantastic on the ball, fast and athletic.
“He has to shout a little louder from time to time, but it has also gotten better. I think AC is a great defender.
“He has developed both on and off the field in the time he has been here. I still want more AC; I want more personality.
“It’s gotten better, but it’s one of those places where I want to keep pushing him a little bit.
“I want to demand more from him both on and off the field. It has got better, and in my world, he controls a little bit himself how far he wants to take it.”
