England youth international Faustino Anjorin believes he can only become a better player under the established stars he’s blessed to train with the Chelsea first team.
The young midfielder is gradually making the step-up to the Blues’ senior team, and he’s delighted to be picking lessons from some of the game’s finest.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard handed the 18-year-old his first-team debut in September last year in the Blues’ 7–1 EFL Cup win against Grimsby Town.
The youngster’s Premier League bow arrived against Everton this month as he continues to earn opportunities with the senior team.
The Poole-born midfielder is aware that more is expected of him if he desires to be a permanent feature of Lampard’s side.
He is, however, confident that with help from elite players like Brazil’s Willian, France international Olivier Giroud, and former Barcelona ace Pedro, he stands a good chance of fulfilling his potential.
“The speed, the tempo, everyone’s quicker, stronger, physically bigger,’ he says. ‘They’re elite players. People like Willian, Olivier Giroud, Pedro – he’s won literally everything!” Anjorin told Chelsea’s official webpage.
“Learning from them, getting that experience and advice from them, having a manager like Frank Lampard who’s done it all, it can only make you a better player.”
