Livramento’s form for the Saints proves that Chelsea’s academy model is correct


Livramento's form at Southampton shows Chelsea's continental academy model outshining its rivals

Livramento impresses after Southampton change

They may be early doors in the 2021-22 Premier League campaign, but Southampton’s new kid, Valentino Livramento, is proving his worth at St. Mary’s even though he’s still just eighteen.

After completing a Chelsea trade in the summer, Livramento has instantly become an option for Saints boss Ralph Hasenhüttl, whose track record has shown his willingness to turn to the young if deemed good enough.

Across five early career matches, the London native has started all five of Southampton’s Premier League fixtures, and shone particularly against Manchester United, as well as this afternoon against reigning champions Manchester City, while kept Jack Grealish relatively calm during the day.

Today, the England Under-21 international is in the club’s top five in all major defensive categories; 2nd in tackles (2.1), 2nd in interceptions (1.9), 4th in punts (2.3) and 5th in blocks (0.5). Note: data provided by Squawka.com.

Such has been the instantaneous impact of the young Englishman that his boss has recently felt the need to do away with some of the fast-growing expectations surrounding him in late August after his performance against United;

“It’s too early. He still has a lot to learn but he has everything. He has the body, the speed, the quality on the ball and also the most important thing for me is that he has the right mentality and it’s a good combination, a good package and it’s up to us to work with it. “

The success of the Cobham graduates another advertisement for Chelsea’s continental setup

While many in England love a good story involving an academy graduate rising through the ranks to star in their childhood club, the idea that an academy is there to strictly serve the first team is outdated.

Currently, there is no better club than Chelsea when it comes to producing academy graduates who then offer the West London team a considerable source of income with which they can keep the first team stocked with top-notch talent.

Livramento’s success is just one of many recent examples that have shown that its youth model, something much closer to the models in some of the best youth production centers on the continent, is the right one, despite criticism of the club. that accumulates young players. that he may not have a future at the club.

In addition to Livramento, Chelsea has seen two other young right-backs fly through the pyramid at current club option Reece James, as well as Brighton Tariq Lamptey. Like Livramento, Lamptey left the club for the opportunity to practice his trade full-time in a different first-team setup, while James eventually achieved the grade at Stamford Bridge.

However, that’s not a slight to either player, with Lamptey turning many heads with Graham Potter, and Livramento already proving that being voted academy player of the year last season at Chelsea was no fluke; especially when a data comparison with James (in a 90 minute matrix) shows that he is currently outshining the Blues right back.

Without a shred of first-team experience prior to their move to St. Mary’s, Livramento has already established itself as a critical piece of the puzzle under Hasenhüttl and is a testament that pumping out quality young talent is not just about fairy tales. of football and has put Chelsea’s streets ahead of their national rivals when it comes to their ability to fund their efforts wisely without denying themselves the opportunity to improve internally.
