Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea Promote The English Virgil Van Dijk To Replace Andreas Christensen Ahead Of The Finals
Chelsea fans held their breath at the sight of their central defender Andreas Christensen being helped off the pitch by medics as they feared the worst with the Dane having found his feet yet again as a Blue.
Former manager Frank Lampard did not seem to rate the center-back who struggled to get game time under the club’s icon tenure but he has established himself as a mainstay in the lineups of Thomas Tuchel.
Christensen is expected to be out with the tendon injury he suffered against Manchester city although there is a sense of optimism that the player could be fit to face City in the finals of the champions league.
The German tactician has however promoted young English defender Levi Colwill to train with the first team until the end of the season according to the Sun with the highly-rated centre back dubbed the English Virgil Van Dijk because of his frame.
There is a buzz around the club that the young defender could be the next breakthrough star for the Blues after his starring role for the Andy Myers coached side which saw them finish as runners up to Manchester City.
Levi has been at the club since the age of eight and recently signed his contract on his 17th birthday and his training involvement could just convince Tuchel that he has stumbled on another gem at the club.
