Chelsea defender, Reece James has come out to say that he has been receiving advice from Ashley Cole weekly ahead of Euro 2020. James recently revealed that he has always looked up to Chelsea legends because they played for the club he supports.
According to him, Ashley Cole is one of the best left-backs to play the game, and he still uses his quality advice even if he is a right back.
Reece added that he also looks up to Frank Lampard because he is an absolute legend of the game.
His words, “When I was young I wasn’t always a right back,”
“I was a striker. But I’ve always looked up to Frank Lampard because he played for the club I supported, Ashley Cole similar. So I’ve always supported the boys who played for the team I supported.”
“[With Cole], we speak nearly every week. Probably one of the best left-backs to play the game. Even though he was a left-back the position is basically the same, just on the opposite side. He helps me a lot progressing.”
“I think winning the Champions League final and playing against such a high-quality team and coming away with the win is going to boost anyone’s confidence but doing it against the Premier League champions gives you a boost as well.”
“It’s hard to say. Not many people win the Champions League. I knew coming here that we just played against City, they’re not going to be happy with the result. We kind of had to be a bit humble with it we couldn’t boast and rub it in. We just had to accept it. We know we won.”
“Now we’re here we’re together as a team with a massive tournament ahead and we need to fight together.”
