Ethan played for RB Liepzig in a game of three halves (135 minutes!) against Rennes yesterday. Liepzig won 2-0 and apparently Ethan did OK. I used Google Translate to interpret the game report and it came up with the following ... don't know how accurate a translation this is!! 'Ethan Ampadu had two, three strong and two, three weaker action. He will do us very well.'

Amps not in RB Leipzig 20 man squad for their game today away to Osnabrook.

Can’t help feeling he would have been better off going on loan to Villa or a top Championship Club.

Anyone see and hear the brief interview he gave? By the time I got the barman to turn the volume up the interview had finished. Would have liked to hear what he had to say.

Hope he's not going to spend the season on the bench ... he could have done that in West London, and the way Chelsea are defending at the moment he could conceivably been fast tracked into the first team?

Personally I think he was badly advised and should have gone somewhere like Villa where he would have surely played first team PL football and stayed in the eye of the British media.....currently out of sight out of mind.

Maybe, Chelsea didn't want him to go to anybody else in the PL!

I think people are being miles too quick to judge. He’s had an injury, been fit for no time at all (if he is) and made the bench in the one league game they have had.
