Chelsea youngster Jeremie Boga has revealed how he has improved under Antonio Conte’s stewardship, report the London Evening Standard.
Boga has been one of the stars of Chelsea’s pre-season tour so far. After Pedro suffered a nasty facial injury during a collision with Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina, Boga was brought onto the field of play and immediately began to showcase his talent.
The Frenchman earned himself a start against Bayern Munich, where has played just over an hour as the Blues fell to a narrow 3-2 defeat.
This season may well be the year that Boga finally establishes himself in Chelsea’s first-team squad, and he believes that Conte’s influence has improved him as a player.
The London Evening Standard quote Boga, who reveals:
“In just the few weeks I have been on pre-season with Antonio Conte, I have been learning a lot tactically and he is good for me.”
“He gives instructions for the strikers, for the way we play and the way we defend also. It is very tactical and I think it is what I am missing in my game. I am really focused because I need to learn more tactically.”
These comments are a clear indication of how Boga has matured both as a player and as a man. Fingers crossed he gets an opportunity in the side next term, providing him with the opportunity to develop into the player he’s destined to be.
