Ruben Loftus Cheek has not looked back since stamping his mark on Chelsea’s midfield and his teammate Emerson had high praises for him in a recent interview.
“Ruben, for me, will become one of the most important footballers in the world because he’s a central midfielder who has everything. He is strong physically, he’s quick, he knows how to defend and how to attack, and he’s becoming a very important modern midfielder. He is a great player who will become even better.” : source: Football.London
He did not stop at Loftus Cheek, he also was in awe of fellow academy graduate Callum Hudson-Odoi.
“For me, Callum is the future of Chelsea. He has already demonstrated at this age – at 18 – that he is very strong, and he has done it at Chelsea, which is a great team. For me, within two or three years, he will be at the top of his game.”
