AC Milan

Chelsea defender names AC Milan star among three hardest opponents faced


Chelsea defender Reece James has named AC Milan star Rafael Leao among the three hardest opponents that he has ever had to face.

James was asked by a fan during a question and answer session on Twitter who the hardest opponent is that he has ever had to face, to which the full-back replied: “3 hardest players I’ve ever played against are all left wingers! Vinicius Jr, Leao and Mane!”

It is high praise for the Portuguese winger who faced off against James in the Champions League group stages and was ultimately unable to find a way past the Chelsea academy graduate at least in terms of making a dent on the scoresheet, though he did have some interesting duels with him in both legs.

Of course, there will be some that suggest these comments fuel the transfer rumours linking Leao with a potential move to Stamford Bridge, but the former Lille man admitted earlier today that he had a positive meeting with Paolo Maldini before the World Cup over his extension.
