Chelsea youth chief Drummy: NextGen was great

Chelsea youth chief Dermot Drummy is full of praise for the NextGen series.

The competition is expected to return next season.

Chelsea are taking part in the UEFA Youth League this term and Drummy said: "The NextGen was a massive competition for all of us, the players and staff,' he explains. 'Travelling to places such as Russia and then going so close to winning it in Lake Como makes us even more desperate to do well this time.

"Experience helps you along the way and even though playing against European teams won't be completely new to us, it will be interesting for the younger players we're going to add to the squad, so it gives them something to aim for."
