I think I was in the first group he coached, actually, so he has a lot of stories about me!”Joe’s been a huge part of my growth at the club. I have to give credit to the others who have coached me as well, but he was my first coach at Chelsea and my manager in the Under-18s, so we had that journey together. He told me when I was wrong, he pushed me to the max and I will always respect him for that. Now, I’m here in the first team with him as well, and playing for Frank Lampard.” last_img
