Chelsea told they have signed future superstar in Bertrand Traore
Chelsea have been told they're signed a potential superstar in Bertrand Traore.
Traore was outstanding for Burkina Faso at the U17 World Cup, where his coach Rainer Willfeld said: "He could become a very great player because he can do everything with the ball, he has a good eye, he can play good passes, he has control, he has everything.
“What he is lacking is physical ability to compete with bigger players in a one-on-one situation.
“He can reach any level if he comes into good coaching, people who will look after him correctly and not make him a big player before he is a big player, then I think he can play at any level within five years.”
Burkina Faso’s sports minister Jean-Pierre Palm, announced Chelsea’s capture of the country’s brightest young talent yesterday.
Traore was in Ghana earlier this week to secure his visa ahead of flying to London.
