Antonio Conte believes that Andreas Christensen has the potential to become Chelsea’s captain.
Andreas Christensen returned to Chelsea last summer following a loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, and the 21-year-old has made 31 appearances in all competitions for his English club this season.
Conte has said that Christensen “is having a fantastic season”, and the Italian has tipped the Denmark international to become Chelsea captain.
“During your career you can make a lot of mistakes. If I had to speak about my mistakes from my career we would be here all day,” Conte told reporters.
“Christensen is having a fantastic season and showing great maturity. For me, apart from his mistake, his performance [against Barcelona] was wonderful. I trust Christensen. I think this player is a present player for Chelsea and can be here for 10, 12 years. I think he can be captain.”
