Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, was delighted with Tino Anjorin for his Champions League against Krasnodar.
Anjorin enjoyed a fruitful full debut, with the teenage wing looking comfortable on the ball and working hard.
Lampard hailed his work ethic and admitted he would spend the next few weeks with the first team, while Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi recover from hamstring issues.
“Tino showed a real ability to step straight into the level, in terms of his abilities on the ball, which I think he showed,” said Lampard after the 1-1 draw.
“His physical attributes to protect the ball and run shone through well. He’s a work in progress – especially after recent injury concerns – but he’s a player that the more he trains with us, the better he gets.
“With the injuries we have, in the short-term he’ll be spending more time with us. It was a good debut and he grew into the game as it went along.”
