“I don’t want to be a normal centre-half” – Rising Chelsea star making all the right noises

Chelsea have got some players out on loan who are already knocking hard on the door of Thomas Tuchel for next season.

There are the obvious once like Billy Gilmour, Conor Gallagher, and Armando Broja who have all already proven they have the quality to be an asset in our squad in recent season.

It would be amazing if you guys subscribed for my project over at Si & Dan Talk Chelsea, where we are putting out so much Chelsea content including DAILY Newsletters, exclusive news, breaking news, Podcasts, interviews, inside information, and bringing in some massive guests!

But there is one name who is perhaps not on the lips of fans quite as much as the aforementioned players, but yet he is still making a name for himself out on loan in the Championship this season and that has got Chelsea fans pondering.

Levi Colwill of course is the player I am talking about, the left footed centre back playing at Huddersfield this season in a back three, the same formation that Thomas Tuchel has mostly opted for during his time as Chelsea boss.

Colwill is coming up fast, and he is making all the right noises.

“It was probably the people around me and the dedication that Huddersfield put into me that decide it,” Colwill told the Chelsea website on his decision to join Huddersfield this summer.

“I was doing Zoom meetings with them and they were telling me how they play, doing the small details like showing clips of me playing in an Under-23s game and then what they do in training to help things.

“For example, they highlighted how I turn my body during games and now when I’m playing, I do notice it now because I’m trying to change my ways to help myself become a better player. It’s just simple things like that that make a big difference, and that can be the difference of me blocking a shot or the opposition scoring. It’s just the small margins that help so that really sucked me in.

“It was also about the way the manager and the team plays football. I don’t want to be a normal centre-half. I want to be exciting on the ball and play football so the way this team play, taking time on the ball, it helps me express how I play more and I thought I’d really enjoy it, which I have.

“I came here and it’s put a spotlight on me, which has helped me a lot in the Championship so I just need to keep playing well. They’ve put a lot of work and time into me and I can feel myself as a player learning things every day which I respect highly.”
