Chelsea striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has heaped praise on AC Milan counterpart Rafael Leao following the Blues 3-0 win over the Italian side last night.
Graham Potter’s side hosted the Serie A champions at Stamford Bridge on matchday three of the Champions’ League group stages last night desperately looking for their first win in the competition this season.
They secured that with a comfortable margin thanks to goals from Wesley Fofana, Aubameyang and Reece James in a comprehensive display.
It was not all plain sailing for the Premier League side, though, with Milan causing problems throughout the game but unable to take their chances.
Indeed, Chelsea are known to be one of his admirers, with this game providing the perfect opportunity for them to see him in the flesh.
He will have left a positive impression despite the feat, as proven by Chelsea striker Aubameyang’s assessment of him following the game.
“He is an incredible player, truly impressive,” Milan News report him saying to TuttoMercatoWeb’s microphones post-mach.
“He is very fast, powerful, he can make the difference at any time. Nothing else to say except that he is unbelievable.”
