Chelsea prodigy Mbuyamba reposts fan images with thank you message: 'made my day'

Chelsea talent Xavier Mbuyamba has taken to social media to repost fan-captured footage of his involvement ahead of the club’s meeting with Aston Villa during the week.

Who is Xavier Mbuyamba?

Mbuyamba, 19, is a Dutch central defender.

The youngster is a product of the MVV Maastricht youth system, where he began to attract the attention of scouts across the continent by making his senior debut at the age of just 16.

In the end, after 10 more appearances, it was Barcelona who beat the competition to snag the Mbuyamba signature, luring the defender to Catalunya to link up with the club’s famous La Masia academy.

However, to say that the Blaugrana’s plans for the teenager did not go exactly as planned would be to put it lightly.

Mbuyamba’s stay at the Camp Nou, notably, lasted just 12 months, after disagreements among club executives about its development.

In turn, after a series of broken promises, the Dutchman saw his contract broken last summer.

This, of course, opened the door for other suitors to join in, and Chelsea, which had been forced to end their previous interest in their services due to the club’s transfer ban, quickly rushed in.

Mbuyamba went on to put pen to paper on a 3-year contract in West London:

Despite his somewhat odd stint in Barcelona, ​​the addition of the stopper was seen as a major blow for Chelsea, with Mbuyamba sporting a host of impressive defensive traits.

In fact, the 19-year-old’s height (6ft 5) and his skill with the ball have even seen him win early. comparisons Liverpool stalwart Virgil van Dijk.

‘Comment level 100’

So it should come as no surprise to learn that, during the first weeks of the new season, Mbuyamba’s talent has been rewarded by Thomas Tuchel.

Of course, it is common knowledge that Chelsea were looking for defensive reinforcements throughout the summer period, and that Sevilla star Jules Kounde was very enthusiastic. inclined for a Stamford Bridge switch.

In the end, however, such a move did not materialize.

In turn, Mbuyamba has been given greater exposure to the senior setup in West London, an opportunity that he seems eager to make the most of:

And, as described above, on Friday, the promising plug has led to social media once again.

This time around, Mbuyamba highlighted footage captured by fans, after he was awarded a bench spot for Chelsea’s EFL Cup takedown against Aston Villa on Wednesday.

The clip in question sees the Blues fan praising the Dutchman’s talent amid his warm-up efforts, with Mbuyamba, in turn, admitting that the video “ made my day ”:
