Chelsea star Cesare Casadei joins us for our latest episode of Wonderkids, discussing his loan at Leicester City this season as the Foxes bid for an instant return to the Premier League under Enzo Maresca.
The Italian midfielder, who won the golden boot and golden ball at the under-20 World Cup this year, also chats about working under Pochettino during Chelsea’s pre-season tour, getting to know Jamie Vardy, and what he uses for motivation.
Thanks to the EFL and EAFC for making this happen!
