Chelsea teen Ethan Ampadu: I didn't expect to play so much

Chelsea teen Ethan Ampadu is delighted to now be working with the first team.

Ampadu admits he didn't expect to see senior football so soon after joining last season from Exeter City.

"I did not expect it, but it's something you're working towards," he told Goal.

"You work towards it, but you do not expect it. I'm not going to say that I've already made it, because I still have a long way to go.

"I have always been a fan. I grew up as a Chelsea supporter and always wanted to play for Chelsea. They finally gave me the chance to make my dream come true."
