Brentford star Ben Mee sent a 4 word massage to Chelsea’s potential player

Brentford’s Ben Mee has singled out Chelsea’s Levi Colwill for special recognition when discussing noteworthy English defenders. Colwill, a 20-year-old left-footed centre-back, has emerged as a standout talent from Chelsea’s academy at Cobham and has become a regular presence in the Blues’ first team at Stamford Bridge, featuring in 14 appearances across various competitions this season.

Despite his youth, Colwill has left a positive impression on Chelsea’s head coach, Mauricio Pochettino, evident in the significant minutes he has logged on the pitch, either in his natural position at centre-half or providing cover at left-back. While a recent shoulder injury caused him to miss out on England’s senior squad, Colwill was seen participating in first-team training with Chelsea on the 5th stand app.

Ben Mee, the 34-year-old centre-half for Brentford, expressed admiration for several English defenders, specifically praising Colwill’s performances. Mee remarked, “[Fikayo] Tomori’s playing fantastic over where he’s playing, and [Levi] Colwill’s been doing great as well. And I’ve always been a big fan of Lewis Dunk…”

Despite Colwill’s young age and occasional deployment out of position at full-back, there is a belief that the best version of him is yet to come. The expectation is that he will become a key figure in Chelsea’s central defense, known for his ball-playing abilities. Colwill is currently engaged in a competitive battle for a spot in Chelsea’s starting XI, particularly in the left-back position, which has gained added intrigue with the return to form of Marc Cucurella. The competition for starting positions in the central defense is also intense, featuring experienced players like Thiago Silva, Benoit Badiashile, and Axel Disasi.

Colwill’s impressive performances have earned him recognition, with WhoScored including him in the Premier League Team of the Season so far for Under-21 players, highlighting the swift adaptation and impact he has made since returning from a successful loan spell at Brighton last year.
