Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah has revealed that he's determined to impress Jose Mourinho during his loan spell with Premier League outfit Burnley, reports the Express.
The 19-year-old has joined the Clarets on loan until January and could could make his debut at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace today.
Chalobah has insisted that he's excited to star in the Premier League after previous spells in the Championship, and he's determined to prove his credentials in England's elite division.
Speaking to reporters, he said: “It’s going to be a great experience. Everyone watches the Premier League and it’s every boy’s dream to play in the Premier League, so I’m just waiting for my chance.
“The manager has a good relationship with all the players at Chelsea and thinks highly of us. You definitely don’t get forgotten.
“There are people coming to watch your games and phone us and there are clips available of our games and what we need to do to put us in a good position when you go back to Chelsea.
“To come here and give a good impression could obviously put me in a better position when I go back.
“I’m a Chelsea player for the next few years and I’m always going to have that belief I can play for Chelsea, that’s not going to change.
“For every youngster at the club it’s always good to have that belief you can break into the team.
The youngster has insisted that, despite Chelsea having a number of world-class stars in their side, he won't give up on his Blues career.
He continued by saying: “There are world-class names playing and it is always going to be difficult. That’s not to say you should give up on it, but you’re training and going out on loan to impress, and you never know.
“There are still youngsters there who could get a chance there this year, so anything is possible.”
When the teenager does return to Stamford Bridge, he will have to compete with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic and Ramires for a place in Mourinho's starting XI. It remains to be seen, however, as to whether he will be sent back out on loan in the winter market.
