Chelsea assistant coach and former player has heaped praise on blues graduate Ruben Loftus-Cheek with improved performances that have earned him more starting roles for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
Zola SPEAKING IN A PRE-MATCH CONFERENCE SAID
“Ruben has gone a long way from the beginning of the season. He has improved a lot, especially his application on the pitch,” Zola said. “No one ever doubted his qualities. They are easy to see. But as a midfielder he’s learning duties he didn’t have before. He was quoted by Football London
“He had the duties, but maybe he didn’t have the application. That is improving at the moment. I’m very pleased with him.
“He’s an impact player. I’m pleased for him because he’s worked hard. He was suffering when he didn’t play. To see him achieving something and being recognised, it must be very good for him.”
