Jose Mourinho says that Ruben Loftus-Cheek is Chelsea’s best academy success. He also hinted that the young midfielder will feature in the first team during the 2015-16 season.
He also said that the young midfielder is the best graduate of the 2014-15 academy class.
“It starts with the facilities but it ends with the co-operation between the academy and the first team. At this moment we are working well. The players are the best witness of that work and they feel it. We know we are going in the right direction,” he told reporters.
“This year, the most important title for the academy was Ruben, not the Uefa Youth League or the FA Youth Cup. It was Ruben: the best trophy. I’m excited but I keep emotional control. If I don’t I’d lose the players or help them go the wrong way but, yes, I am excited – but with stability. At this minute, that’s what they need.”
