I want to be the next Mr.Chelsea, Todd Kane


I want to be the next Mr.Chelsea, Todd Kane, the 22-year-old talks about his dream to become a Chelsea legend. This can be an emotional one for the Blue fans who are desperate to see their academy talents making a mark in the first team.

Kane is serving a one year at NEC in the Eredivisie and is the undisputed right back for the Dutch side the whole season. The English U-19 international is one of the brightest talents to come out of the Chelsea youth academy and has served five loan spells since 2011. He has been impressive in the Eredivisie this season as the likes of Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV are interested in signing the player on a permanent basis.

Despite interest from London rivals Tottenham, the English right-back is keen to stay at Chelsea who is even ready to sign a 10 year deal with the Blues as he aims to become a Legend at the Stamford Bridge.

“I don’t just want to play one or two games for Chelsea. If they offered me a 10-year contract, I’d take it now. I support Chelsea, I’ve been there a long time, my whole family is from the area – it’s the ultimate goal.”

“What you saw with Ryan Giggs at Manchester United, that’s what I want to be at Chelsea.”

“A lot of clubs are interested. Clubs came in for me in January, but I had a talk with Chelsea. Everything has gone well here [at NEC] and I don’t want to change that,” the player told Goal.

Kane has a contract with Chelsea until 2018 and has the belief that he can crack into Chelsea’s senior team. Chelsea is not known for giving chances to their youth products and their loaning system is not helping the youngsters as expected. But Kane is confident that he can make very good of his Loan chances and is desperate to impress new coach Antoine Conte under whom he will be doing the pre-season training.
“If I have to go on loan or anything to get my chance [with Chelsea], whatever it is, I’ll do it. But if it’s not Chelsea, then I’m sure there’ll be other clubs.”

“I want to keep getting better at defending. To go to a high level, which I want to do, I have to be a very good defender.”

“Chelsea watch every game and I get good feedback about what I’m doing wrong and right. I’m learning that way, so they are always helping me.”

“Starting next season with a new manager, [Antonio Conte], I could go back to Chelsea and have a pre-season, get my head down and fingers crossed he might like me. We’ll see what happens,” he added.

Kane is one of the most expected youth product from Chelsea, but with Ceaser Azpilicueta being the undisputed right back choice after Branislav Ivanovic, it will be extremely hard for Kane to make a first team berth.
