Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has revealed he took inspiration from Chelsea legend John Terry to make it to the first team.

Tomori was on loan at Derby County last season, but said he was never in doubt he would make it to the first team after taking inspiration from Chelsea legend John Terry, who graduated from the Academy and went on to captain the team for many years.

“Obviously we had John Terry who had made that step from the Academy, and he was the player I looked at when thinking of the pathway to the first team,” he told Chelsea website.

“In recent years we have seen a lot of players get close to that level but probably not have a sustained run in the side like the younger players have had this season.

“So JT was the one we looked at as the inspiration that we could get a chance here at Chelsea, and that was always the motivation. Once you get there [playing for the senior team] the challenge then is to stay there, to keep your place and try to impress the manager.”
