A recent interview with Chelsea’s new signing Enzo Fernandez has gone viral after he commented on Declan Rice.
The Blues record-signing has adapted well to life in London and fans are already impressed by his display in their 0-0 draw with Fulham on Friday.
He broke the British record after signing from Benfica for an eye-watering £108 million after he impressed Todd Boehly with his performances at the Qatar World Cup.
Fernandez has played with some of the best players in football but when asked about who he admires, the 22-year-old named Declan Rice.
“I try to watch as much football and learn a little bit from everyone. I like Rice of England, I try to watch him and learn.” he told a Chinese TV station.
Declan Rice haters can try taking down the Enzo video but we always got a backup available.

Rice has been linked with Chelsea on numerous occasions but they will have to battle it out with Arsenal in the summer if they want to get their man.
