Chelsea wonderkid Boga reveals what Mourinho said to him before substitution

Mourinho Press Conference Still

Pre-season Chelsea goalscorer has been talking about his first goal for the senior side.

Young Chelsea sensation Jeremie Boga has been discussing Jose Mourinho's tactical advice he gave him before bringing him on against RZ Pellets.

The words were significant because Boga used them to score his first ever goal for Chelsea's senior side.

He told Chelsea's website: "He just asked me to press them high up the pitch and press with intensity, apart from that he just told me to play my normal game and enjoy myself.

‘I’ve been enjoying training with the first team every day, you can only improve working with world-class players every day and it’s a great experience for me.’

Mourinho's desire to press is illustration of the hard work he expects from his attacking players, whether they be senior internationals or inexperienced 17-year-old's like Boga.

The French attacking midfielder is a wildly talented prospect, already a regular for Chelsea's under-21 side.

He scored five goals and provided four assists for them last season, scoring another in the UEFA Youth League.

There is a strong cast of youngsters in the queue alongside or in front of him waiting for a chance, and that's not even accounting for the likes of Piazon or Thorgan Hazard on loan.

Yet if Boga continues to do as Mourinho asks and make an impact on the pitch, he may become impossible to ignore, and become the exception to the rule by earning a sudden jump to the first team.
