Colwill Poised For Chelsea Stardom As Pochettino Unveils Ambitious Vision. In a stunning twist of fate, young prodigy Colwill finds himself on the cusp of greatness at Chelsea Football Club, with visionary coach Pochettino unmasking his grand designs for the rising star.
Colwill has agreed to a new six-year contract extension with Chelsea until 2029, and he is now anticipated to play an important role in the club’s season. Benoit Badiashile is now out with a hamstring injury, allowing Colwill to establish himself as a regular in Pochettino’s starting XI.
Pochettino said Colwill is in contention to start against Liverpool ahead of Chelsea’s last pre-season friendly against Borussia Dortmund, but stressed he will not provide any assurances. “We assume that he is going to play,” Pochettino said of Colwill.
“I was clear with him when we were talking for him to have the possibility to compete with teammates about who deserves to play. For sure, if he deserves to play he’s going to play.
“Of course, his possibility to play is higher because Benoit is injured and he is a left centre-back, but he needs to deserve it. If one player is injured, there are different kinds of combinations that can happen.
“He needs to show that he is ready to play and deserves to play.”
