I would love to be Chelsea captain – star player reveals

Chelsea unveil the shirt numbers of the new signings ahead Brighton game

The average age of the Chelsea squad is about 22 and Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell is the third oldest outfield player in the squad.


Chilwell is one of just three remaining players who started the Champions League Final in 2021 and, having been at Chelsea for three years, is one of our longest-serving players.

“I would love to be captain,” says Chilwell. “I was captain of the youth team at Leicester. Whether I get it or not, it’s not going to take away from my role.

“I don’t think you need an armband to be a leader so whether I get it or I don’t I’ll continue to do what I’m doing.”

Chilwell is keen to press home the demands of playing for the Blues to a young squad.

“I was talking to Reece about it today,” he says. “There are only a few boys who were here last season so we feel a responsibility to be the leaders of the group.

“We want to help the younger players on their path and understand the demands of playing for Chelsea which is to win. That’s a must.

“There are a lot of players here who are very talented but we need to also make sure that being at Chelsea means we have to win trophies.”
