"He Is Better than Kounde” Chelsea fans hail defender after he trains with Tuchel’s Chelsea

Last summer transfer window Chelsea completed the transfer of three defenders on a free transfer. The first one was Thiago Silva from PSG, the second one was Malang Sarr and the last one was Xavier Mbuyamba from Barcelona football club who many football fans perceive him to be the next Virgil Van Dijk.

After their signing Thiago Silva was integrated into the first team and Malang Sarr loaned at Porto football club.

Chelsea fans were in a buoyant mood after learning Xavier Mbuyamba has been promoted to the Chelsea first-team by Thomas Tuchel.

Mbuyamba suffered a long-term injury almost immediately after joining Chelsea from Barcelona last summer.

The defender is highly-rated and some Chelsea fans have hailed him as better than Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde.

@sethaadusei tweeted: “Better than Kounde.”

@trueblueshade10 tweeted: “VVD eat your heart out.”

@FavCreative tweeted: “I love this.”

@CJHCFC199 tweeted: “Chance over this break to show Tuchel what he’s made of, great to see.”

@RealTalkCFC tweeted: “If he can keep on improving and impress TT we don’t need to buy kounde.”
