‘His ambition is to wear the armband’ – Reece James Snr reveals son’s Chelsea Captain dream!

Reece James Senior has revealed that his son’s priority is to stay at Chelsea and inherit the captain’s armband one day. He has played over 150 games for his boyhood club and continues to see his future at Stamford Bridge. 

Speaking to The Beautiful Game podcast, James Sr. said: “I was just gobsmacked. I don’t read things anymore, because yeah, until someone rings my phone, or tells the people I work with what the deal is then you take something seriously but Reece is a top player, so I’m sure most clubs would want to sign him but right now I don’t see anything changing.”

“He is a Chelsea player and until, if Chelsea wants to sell him, it’s like anything. If a club do not want to work with you anymore and for some reason they want to get rid of you then you go. If they want you … he’s been there since six years of age, his ambition is to wear the armband and captain the side and it broke his heart the season we have had just gone.”

Reece James will hope to impress new coach Pochettino starting with his injury record.
