Wales fans have praised Chelsea’s Ethan Ampadu after his display for them against Slovakia last night.

Ampadu has struggled for game time at club level this season, after Chelsea loaned him out to Red Bull Leipzig over the summer.

Wales boss Ryan Giggs has stuck by the Chelsea man though, with the youngster starting last night.

 

Ampadu repaid his manager’s faith by putting in a strong performance against Slovakia, although he wasn’t able to help his side win.

Wales only managed to pick up a 1-1 draw against Slovakia, which means they still face a fight to qualify for Euro 2020.

But Chelsea man Ampadu was one of the players who impressed the most on the night.

It remains to be seen whether Ampadu will be relocated by Chelsea in January now, as his talent clearly merits more game time than he has received this term.

Ampadu is yet to feature in a competitive game for Leipzig, and Chelsea will want him to receive more game time before January, when it is believed they are able to recall him.
