It didn’t take long for another of his heroes, N’Golo Kante, to join the Blues. When a friend asked Caicedo what he wanted for his 18th birthday, his answer was a Kante shirt, one with his name on it and Kante arrived right.
His own Chelsea shirt will soon follow. It’s no surprise that Caicedo saw the light just as Willian did 10 years ago this month.
‘Makelele and Kante inspired me,’ the 21-year-old told us on his first day at Cobham.
‘They are very humble on the pitch. I think I can say we have similar attributes but better, but now I will give everything for this club. Because they have done a lot for me.
