REECE JAMES: Chelsea Is Incredibly Lucky To Have Such A Rare Diamond In Its Hands

The future of football is in the hands of youngsters so it is always a delightful situation when a club has a young player coming through the ranks of the academy.

Chelsea's Reece James is a typical example of what a talented academy graduate looks like. He is loved by the fans, he is full of quality, he is totally committed to the club and he understands the club's values whilst appreciating the chance he was given by the club.

It is not every time that young players are given the opportunity to showcase their talents and this has caused the fading away of several talented players around the football world.

For a player so young, Reece James is responsible in defence and also extremely productive and effective in the attack. His two goals against Newcastle last weekend certainly proved that. The English right-back also has the physicality and athleticism required to compete in the modern game.

To crown it all, Reece James is mentally strong and his hunger, desire and willingness are always visible whenever he steps on the pitch. In modern football, it is rare to find players who combine excellent abilities with so much commitment, passion and humility.

During the Champions League final against Manchester City, Reece James showed how good he was. Pep Guardiola's men couldn't find a way through him due to his pace, endurance, agility, power, intelligence and bravery.

Chelsea has a diamond in Reece James and the board knows this. In the modern game where full-backs are becoming highly important to the attacking and defending structure of a team, to find Reece James from the academy is a stroke of incredible luck to Chelsea.

With Achraf Hakimi moving to PSG for about 70 million Euros, Reece James may just have saved Chelsea from spending such an astronomical sum of money on a full-back/wing-back. Reece James is a rare diamond and the club would be hoping to have more of his kind in the future.
