Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic: The young players make it fun to play here

Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic says the team's youngsters can be proud of the role they've played in this season.

Kovacic dismissed any suggestion that inexperience has played a part in their recent dip given our youthful squad, instead praising the attitude of the younger members of the team.

"These young players, they are really good and they take the pressure really well," he insisted to chelseafc.com.

"If you're at Chelsea it doesn't matter how old you are, you need to be ready to play every week at a high level and that is what we all do, but sometimes in football everything doesn't go how you want, that was the problem in our last games.

"I don't like to mention just one, because all of them are doing great and they are Chelsea's future. The young guys are great guys, laughing all the time, and we also like to joke. It's an amazing team and we have a lot of fun on the pitch and outside the pitch as well."
