Chelsea striker Armando Broja happy to get off mark against Peterborough

Chelsea striker Armando Broja is delighted to be part of preseason under manager Thomas Tuchel.

The opportunity the play alongside and learn from his more experienced Chelsea team-mates is one Armando is keen to make the most of and he certainly seemed to do that against Peterborough, as he set up Hakim Ziyech before finding the net himself in a 6-1 victory over our Championship opposition.

Broja told chelseafc.com: "I was very happy to get my first goal in pre-season, it was a nice way to start. As a young striker you need to have confidence. It's not nice when you miss chances, you feel down about yourself and it's not a good place to be in, so it's nice to manage to get on the scoresheet and help out the team as much as possible, which is the most important thing.

"The game against Peterborough was very nice. I was lucky enough to get 45 minutes playing, and I got an assist and a goal. It was good to be involved because you can definitely see a big difference in quality from the Academy to the first team."
