"Enthusiastic about it" - Father prefers Chelsea youth talent for Nigeria

Posted : 17 January 2024

Ndubuisi Ezenwata, the father of promising Chelsea youth player Chizzy Ezenwata, expressed his desire for his son to prioritize representing Nigeria at the international level. Chizzy, born in England, is eligible for England's Young Lions and could also play for Cameroon due to his Cameroonian heritage.

The 15-year-old has gained acclaim for his stellar performances at Chelsea, scoring 22 goals and providing five assists in fifteen games for the U15s and U16s since his arrival at Cobham in August. Prior to joining Chelsea, Chizzy showcased his talent at Charlton Athletic, scoring over 100 goals and registering 40 assists in two seasons.

Chizzy's father, who has a football background, emphasized the success of Nigeria's Golden Eaglets and expressed his preference for his son to represent Nigeria, citing the top-notch coaching at the youth level. Despite eligibility for England and Cameroon, Ndubuisi Ezenwata strongly advocates for Nigeria, highlighting the success stories of players like Osimhen, Iheanacho, Obi Mikel, and Kanu Nwankwo.

While acknowledging that the decision ultimately rests with Chizzy, Ndubuisi Ezenwata shared that both his sons are excited about the prospect of playing for Nigeria, emphasizing the developmental opportunities provided by the Nigerian youth system.

Chizzy, who has previously been associated with West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur, has received a pre-scholarship deal from Chelsea.
