‘Better than Kounde’ – Some Chelsea fans buzzing to see 19-year-old in training


Chelsea supporters on social media were in a buoyant mood after discovering Xavier Mbuyamba had been summoned to the seniors, writes the Chelsea Chronicle.

Mbuyamba was spotted in the background of Saul Niguez’s first training session following his deadline day move from Atletico Madrid.

The Dutch defender had previously failed to be promoted from the development set up, despite being a Blue since last August.

In the teenager’s defense, he has been in and out of the treatment room way too frequently in the past year.

He only made his Chelsea debut in April, having been constantly held back by a variety of injuries.

Now back to full fitness, Mbuyamba earned Thomas Tuchel’s recognition and Blues fans absolutely loved it.
