World news – Chelsea full-back James on Sheffield Utd striker Brewster: We both played up front for the academy – tribal football


Chelsea full-back Reece James is delighted that Rhian Brewster, former academy team-mate, is now a Premier League player at Sheffield United.

Not only were they teammates in the same age group at Chelsea Academy before Brewster moved to Liverpool at the age of 15, but surprisingly, they were also strike partners.

« I know Rhian Brewster well. We still talk, but obviously not as regularly as if he was still in the same dressing room, » said James ahead of today’s FA Cup tie.

« He was a bit of a different player back then, he was tiny! Now he’s massive, but when he was here at the academy he was so small and very fast.

« When I was so young I was an attacker too, so I never really played him, I played with him in attack. However, I don’t remember who scored the most goals! »
