Ex-Chelsea youth coach Viveash: Everyone proud of Loftus-Cheek

Former Chelsea youth coach Adi Viveash is delighted to see Ruben Loftus-Cheek thriving at World Cup level.

Viveash, now with Coventry City, worked with Loftus-Cheek at Chelsea's academy.

He told Sky Sports: "There are a lot of people involved in his development who will be watching him with a lot of pride.

"All the traits you see now, the ability to carry the ball at speed, the calmness in possession, the ability to find passes and use space, they were all evident when he was a boy.

"He has always been a wonderfully skilful player for such a big boy," added Viveash. "You would like to bottle that ability, really."
