Jonathan Panzo: "Particularly necessary"
Jonathan Panzo and the U19 Red and White will face Chelsea in the Youth League this Tuesday at 18h. A special meeting for the English international defender ...

The 18-year-old English defender who arrived last summer in the Principality, will find in front of him his former partners of Chelsea, with whom he took his first steps as a footballer. “I started playing at Chelsea at the age of 7 … I played 9, 10 seasons, so obviously tomorrow (Tuesday) will be special for me, but the priority is to win!”

The English U17 World Champion (5-2 against Spain in India – 2017) has stepped once again this Monday night in the hallway of the Academy of Chelsea. Always with that broad smile that draws his face every day. The sturdy central defender smiles in front of the photos where he is seen hilariously on the podium of the FA Youth Cup 2018. “I won 7 trophies here, if my memory does not fail me,” laughs Jonathan in front of the illustrations of his recent and already illustrious past. Only at the end of last year, he will count no less than five trophies won on the season!

“Welcome to work” as it is written on the walls of the Academy greets him. “We have to do the job, and for it to be well done, we need to win the Youth League playoff,” Panzo insists. No doubt he did well on the training ground during his childhood.

This Tuesday at 5:00 PM (18h French time), Jonathan will face his friends at Chelsea … double winner of the Youth League. “I know almost all of them. It’s like that, it’s a little weird but it’s football, it’s football,” he exclaims in a French singing and necessarily smiling. As friendly in life as in the field. Pure Panzo …
