Former Manchester United and England centre defender Rio Ferdinand has given Chelsea youngster Reece James massive praise after last nights performance in the Champions League final.
“He’s a product of the youth academy and we’ve seen some people questioning him, for Chelsea and England,” Ferdinand said.
“Well tonight he performed on the biggest stage and was the standout, he was immense. He backs himself in one-v-one situations.
“If you’re going to play at the top level you have to do that. Today he became a man. Today he answered all those questions.”
