Chelsea Youngster Pleased With Charlton Spell

Chelsea Youngster Pleased With Charlton Spell

England youth international Jay Dasilva has admitted that he's enjoying his spell at Charlton Athletic, with him now back on loan from Chelsea this season.

Having joined Charlton back in January 2017 he made six starts and four substitute showings for us last campaign, but having rejoined over the summer window he's already got ten starts to his name, with a further showing from the bench.

With him having to be patient first time round, manager Karl Robinson already knows what to expect from him and the youngster is now benefiting from that.

Speaking to the Official Site with the October international break in full force at the moment, he explained.

'I am learning a lot off my team-mates. There are a good bunch of lads in the dressing room. As soon as I came in, they were very welcoming. Another good thing is that there are quite a few young players in the team. That was good for me settling in, to be around people my age. I get along well with them.'

He also spoke of how he felt our playing style suited him as a youngster as he continues his own development.

'I like to show my offensive side as much as I can, and affect the game. The style of play at Charlton is good for that. I can push on quite a lot down the left side. It`s as important is the defensive side of things. There are a lot of crosses and long balls going in to the box that need defending; a lot of aerial battles, second balls and knockdowns. You need to be ready to cover. That sort of defensive stuff goes on a lot and being switched on to that is important, and something I am improving at.'

He added.

'Personally, I want to play as many games as I can and get more first team experience under my belt, and keep learning the game throughout the season. Collectively, hopefully we can gain promotion this season. That would be a great achievement and another thing to add to my list.'
