Chelsea youth team player, Jordan Aina has received sweet words of encouragement from his coach, as the gaffer is happy with the lad’s role during their victory over Norwich City.
Ola Aina’s younger was talk of the town after his side’s 5-1 trouncing of The Canaries in the U18 Premier League Cup, for which The Blues’ youth team coach, Andy Myers is happy that he handed the fast-rising central defender a debut.
Before Saturday’s game, Jordan Aina was an unused substitute for the U18 Premier League games against Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa, then got his first competitive game against Norwich.
The first-year scholar was one of five changes in The Blues’ lineup and he operated as a wing-back down the left, which Myers said was equally remarkable.
Myers stated excitedly: ”We made some changes in order to give people game time and from a development point of view it was nice to see Jordan Aina, Pierre Ekwah Elimby and Lewis Bate, an Under-16, come in and do well.
”The performance was good. We stuck to our game plan of putting them under pressure and it was nice to see that pay off in terms of the goals we scored on the high press.”
