Chelsea rising star Billy Gilmour has attributed his success to the training he received from the coaches he had in Chelsea academy.

Assistant managers Jody Morris and Joe Edwards all coached Billy during his academy days and the youngster believes they are the reason why he's playing for the first team today.

“I trust my own ability, and play with great players around me,” Gilmour told chelseafc.com.

“They help me a lot with their movement, so I can play them the ball. You need to keep it moving, keep it simple. Then when you start to settle into the game you can start hitting the longer passes and play more forward passes.

“It's down to the gaffer as well for trusting me to play in these big games. Jody, Joe and the gaffer have been brilliant with me. I have had them [Morris and Edwards] through the youth and then to come to the first team with them has been really good for me. It's really good for them to show trust.

“You can see that the manager will give the young players an opportunity and it's up to us to take it when we get the chance. It's exciting to be at Chelsea and I just want to take my opportunity when it comes.”
