PREMIER - Chelsea's Trevoh Chalobah sends message to young Africans
Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah has sent a message to young African players that are looking up to him. The youngster has broken into the Chelsea first team, coming through Chelsea's Academy after moving to England from Sierra Leone at a young age.
Speaking to Chelsea's Fifth Stand App, Chalobah has sent a message to those that look up to him.
He said: "Looking at me now, it'll probably give them hope. I was born there (Sierra Leone). For all black African players, there's a lot of talent, it's about them getting the opportunity to showcase their skills."
The youngster moved to Chelsea from Sierra Leone at the age of seven and grew up in London before joining the Cobham Academy in 2007.
From here Chalobah progressed through the ranks, much like his brother Nathaniel, and won the UEFA Youth League during his time in the Academy.
