Chelsea starlet Ampadu vows to come back 'stronger and fitter'

Chelsea young gun Ethan Ampadu says his rehabilitation from ankle surgery is "progressing well".

The 17-year-old made seven first-team appearances this season before sustaining a season-ending injury during Chelsea's Youth League clash against Real Madrid in March.

"I'm progressing well, the physios are pleased with how it's going but it's about taking each day as it comes and not rushing anything," Ampadu says.

"I just want to make sure I come back stronger and fitter."
