Ruben Loftus-Cheek, one of the club’s very own. The 23-year-old star has been playing for the club since he was eight-years-old, and the fans seem to adore him because of it.
However, after the club’s official Twitter account tweeted out a video of Loftus-Cheek giving some youth players advice, the love for the England international has been ratcheted up a couple of notches.
From one scholar to another, @Rubey_LCheek gives his advice to Chelsea’s next generation! ????
