Chelsea star showered in praise

A Chelsea player has been heavily praised recently.

The player in question is Enzo Fernandez, who, fresh from winning the World Cup, became the most expensive signing in the history of British football with a £107m move to Stamford Bridge in January.

Enzo had a slow start to life in England but still looked promising in a weak Chelsea team.

Last weekend then saw new manager Mauricio Pochettino allow Fernandez more of a licence to go forward when playing Liverpool.

This saw Fernandez put on arguably his best display since signing for Chelsea.

And now, fellow Argentine, Alexis Mac Allister, has showered his countryman in praise after the pair faced off in a 1-1 draw on Sunday:

Speaking to Paramount+, Mac Allister said of his compatriot: “I have already faced him several times, I have played with him, he is a great player.

“I respect him a lot, I have a great relationship. Today he showed why they paid what they paid for him, why he is here, and it makes me happy for him, obviously.”
