He would go on to be the Academy’s Player Of The Year for the 2014/15 season after scoring a goal and getting 3 assists in his 16 appearances in the Under 21 Premier League.

    He was part of the Under 21 Foxes side to finish 6th with 32 points, whilst also making 4 appearances in the FA Youth Cup, reaching the Semi Final where Manchester City knocked them out.

    After impressing in youth football at various levels, Ben Chilwell had his first taste of senior football when he made his professional debut for Leicester City in a League Cup fixture on 27th October 2015 against Hull City, drawing 1 – 1 before losing 5 – 4 on penalties following an extra period where no team were able to find the winning goal.

    He would spend the vast majority of the 2015/16 season on loan with Championship side Huddersfield Town, where he made 8 appearances for a Terriers side that ended that second-tier campaign in 19th place with 51 points. It saw them finish the season with a comfortable margin of 11 points separating themselves from the relegation zone.

    Ben Chilwell broke into the Leicester City First Team in the 2016/17 season. Throughout the campaign, the left-back made 12 appearances, scoring 1 goal along the way. He also made 2 appearances in the UEFA Champions League, which the club had qualified for following their historic and surprise Premier League title win in the previous campaign.

    He was an even more regular fixture in the Foxes First Team in the following season (2017/18), making 32 appearances in all competitions, including 24 in the Premier League alone, helping the club finish 9th place with 47 points. The Foxes missed out on European Football by a margin of 7 points.

    Chilwell made 36 appearances, only missing two games, of the 2018/19 season. They finished in 9th place again, this time accumulating 52 points in the Premier League.

    The 2019/20 season would turn out to be his last in the colours of Leicester City. During his final campaign with the club, he made 27 Premier League appearances for the Foxes, who finished 5th with 62 points, with Chilwell himself scoring 3 goals and collecting 3 assists to boot.

    It was ahead of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign that Ben Chilwell decided to sign for Chelsea in a deal worth a reported £50 million. In the league, he made 27 appearances to help the Blues finish 4th after accumulating 67 points. He also made 10 appearances for Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League, and the left full-back was part of the team that became European Champions after beating Manchester City 1 – 0 in the Final thanks to a Kai Havertz goal late on in the first half (42’).

    Following a tackle in which Chilwell suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament injury against Juventus, he eventually required surgery, which kept him out for the entirety of the 2021/22 season. The Blues finished in 3rd place with 74 points being accumulated. They also beat Spanish LaLiga side Villarreal 7 – 6 on penalties to win the UEFA Super Cup that year.

    Last season (2022/23), Ben Chilwell did return to first-team action for Chelsea, making 30 appearances in all competitions. 23 of these came in the league, where he scored 2 goals and got 3 assists to boot. Chelsea finished 12th that year with 44 points to their name.

    Ben Chilwell has continued to be a regular player in the Chelsea starting eleven so far this season, as of the time of writing.

His current contract with the Blues expires on 30th June 2028. James is mainly utilised as a right-back, but he has been known to play as a right midfielder and also as a central defender. He has played a number of games at centre-back when he is not playing in his usual right-back role.

    Rewind back to the very start of his youth football career, and he was playing for the Kew Park Rangers before eventually joining the Epsom Eagles, who he would go on to leave in 2006 after being spotted and signed by Chelsea to play in their academy set-up at Cobham. Initially, he was only with the Blues for a year, leaving the club for Fulham in 2007. He would, however, only spend a year with the Cottagers before the right full-back was re-signed by the Blues in 2008.

    James would turn professional after signing terms with the club in March 2017. He would be training with the first team more in 2018 before he went on to go out on loan to then-EFL Championship club Wigan Athletic for the duration of the 2018/19 campaign. He would have a stellar loan spell with the Latics, scoring 3 goals and providing 3 assists in his 45 league appearances alone. James helped the club to an 18th place finish in the English Second Tier after accumulating 52 points from their 46 matches.

    Following his sensational spell of form in the second tier, Reece was to become a regular starter for Chelsea in all competitions throughout the 2019/20 season. He made 39 appearances in all competitions, with 24 coming in the Premier League, where he got 2 assists. James and the Blues ended that season in 4th place with 66 points, which secured them UEFA Champions League Qualification.

    The 2020/21 season was to be a great one for Chelsea and Reece James. Over the duration of that campaign, James made 47 appearances for the Blues in all competitions. 32 of these came in the Premier League, where Chelsea would finish 4th once again, this time with 67 points to their name. James would also play a crucial role in Chelsea’s 2021 UEFA Champions League win, starting the 1-0 win against Manchester City in the Final.

    The 2021/22 Premier League campaign is Reece James’ most prolific to date. In the Premier League alone, the right-back made 26 appearances, scoring 5 goals whilst providing no less than 9 assists. His efforts helped his team finish in 3rd place with 74 points accumulated from their 38 matches in the top flight.

    Chelsea, as the holders of the Champions League, made it to the Quarter Finals, where they were knocked out at extra time (5-4) against eventual winners Real Madrid. Reece James made 6 appearances in this competition in the 2021/22 season.

    Last season, 2022/23, Reece made 24 appearances in all competitions. 16 came in the Premier League, where he scored a goal and got an assist on the way to Chelsea, finishing the season in 12th place with 44 points to their name.

    Nationality: Spain

    Marc Cucurella is a Spanish left-back (5ft 8in) who signed for Chelsea from fellow Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion for a rumoured fee of £60 million on 6th August 2022. His current contract with the Blues expires on 30th June 2028. Cucurella is mainly used as a left-back, but he has played as a left midfielder and as a central defender in his career to date.

    You have to rewind to 2006 for the start of Marc Cucurella’s career when he joined Espanyol’s youth academy at the age of 8. After spending 6 years at the Catalan club, he signed for another Catalan club, in the form of La Liga heavyweights FC Barcelona in 2012.

    Fast forward to 26th November 2016, when, at just 18, Marc made his senior debut for Barcelona B (Reserve Team) in the Segunda Division B (Third Tier Of Spanish Football) in an emphatic 4 – 0 victory against L’Hospitalet. Cucurella made 17 appearances for the Blaugrana’s reserve side in the 2016/17 campaign, contributing 4 assists to help his team win promotion to the Segunda Division after a 4 – 1 aggregate win over Racing Santander in the two-legged promotion play-off final.

    During his first season in the second tier, he still made 37 appearances in the Segunda Division for the Blaugrana’s B team, scoring one goal whilst also contributing 4 assists. Despite his significant contribution from left back, Barcelona B were relegated to the Segunda Division B (Tier 3) after accumulating 44 points from their 42 matches. They ended the 2017/18 season just 4 points adrift of safety.

    Then, in the 2018/19 season, Marc Cucurella made a loan move to La Liga club Eibar for the duration of the campaign, making 33 appearances in all competitions, scoring 2 goals and getting 2 assists. The Spanish left back helped his team to a solid and respectable 12th place finish after accumulating 47 points from their 38 matches.

    Cucurella joined Eibar permanently with a €4 million release clause, which was activated by Barcelona just days later, re-signing Cucurella. The defender was subsequently sent out on loan to another La Liga club for the 2019/20 season, this time in the form of Getafe with an option to buy.

    During his loan spell with the Azulones (Deep Blue Ones), he made 46 appearances in all competitions, playing all but one of the 38 La Liga matches. He scored a goal and got 6 assists in the league to help his new club finish 8th with 54 points and narrowly adrift of the European places.

    In that same season, Cucurella made 8 Europa League appearances, helping Getafe to the Round Of 16, where they lost 2 – 0 against Italian Giants Inter Milan.

    Then, in the 2020/21 campaign, he made 39 appearances in all competitions, getting 3 goals and 2 assists as part of a Getafe team that finished in 15th place with 38 points.

    Marc Cucurella left Spain and La Liga behind ahead of the 2021/22 season, signing for Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion for a rumoured fee of £15 million. He spent just one season with the Seagulls, making 38 appearances in all competitions, scoring a goal and getting 2 assists. He helped them achieve a 9th place finish after accumulating 51 points.

    In the summer transfer window ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, Marc signed for Chelsea for an initial fee of around £60 million. In his first season with the Blues, he made 24 appearances, with his new club, finishing in 12th place with 44 points.

  • #33 Wesley Fofana

    Nationality: France

    Wesley Fofana is a French central defender (6ft 1in) who signed for Chelsea from Leicester City on 31st August 2022 for a fee reported to be in the region of £70 million, signing an initial seven contract with the club which expires on 30th June 2029. He predominantly plays as a centre-back.

    The Frenchman’s career began with Repos Vitrolles in 2006, joining at age six before moving on to Bassin Minier in 2008. After spending two years at the club, Pennes Mirabeau would be his next destination, playing for them from 2010 to 2011 when Fofana joined Bel Air. The defender spent four years at the club before signing for Saint Etienne in 2015.

    Saint Etienne, who now play their football in Ligue 2 (France’s Second Tier), had held the record for the most top-flight titles of any club in France with 10, with their most recent title win coming in the 1980/81 season. It took until the 2022/23 season for Paris Saint-Germain to finally break this more than 40-year-old record.

    Fofana signed his first professional contract with Les Verts (The Greens) on 15th May 2018, aged 18. The French defender debuted for the club in a 3 – 0 Ligue 1 victory over Nice on 18th May 2019. He spent most of the 2018/19 season with Saint Etienne II, the club’s reserve team, making 11 appearances in the National 2 (Group B). Fofana did make two appearances in Ligue 1 for the Senior side.

    Saint Etienne II finished 9th in the fourth tier of French football after accumulating 41 points – only 6 points separated them from Moulins-Yzeure in 4th place.

    The 2019/20 season saw Wesley Fofana very much a regular in the Saint Etienne First Team, making no less than 24 appearances in all competitions for Les Verts. Saint Etienne made it to the Final of the Coupe de France, with Fofana making eight appearances in the competition. It was a narrow defeat on the day, losing 1 – 0 to Paris Saint-Germain.

    As for Ligue 1, Fofana made 14 appearances, scoring 1 goal. He was part of the team that finished 17th place with 30 points. Still, the French defender had stood out with his performances, which drew interest from clubs from across the continent, including West Ham (according to Sky Sports), Arsenal, Everton, AC Milan and RB Leipzig (according to LeicestershireLive), all reported to have been interested in signing Fofana.

    Of course, in the end, Leicester City sealed the deal, signing the Frenchman for a fee reported to be in the region of £36.5 million in October 2020, signing a five-year deal with the Foxes. Fofana made his Premier League debut on 18th October 2018, with Leicester losing the game 1 – 0 against Aston Villa.

    His first season with the club, 2020/21, saw him make 38 appearances in all competitions. Fofana made six appearances in the Europa League – after winning their group ahead of SC Braga (Portugal), Zorya Luhansk (Ukraine) and AEK Athens (Greece), the Foxes reached the Round of 32, where they lost 2 – 0 on aggregate against Slavia Prague (Czech Republic).

    As for the Premier League, the Foxes had a tremendous campaign, finishing 5th in the league with 66 points and just one behind a Champions League spot, with Chelsea taking the final one in 4th place with 67 points.

    The 2020/21 season was another historic one for Leicester, beating Chelsea 1-0 in the 2021 FA Cup Final at Wembley thanks to a Youri Tielemans wonder goal in the second half. Fofana made four appearances along the way. Fofana was voted as Leicester’s Young Player Of The Season.

    The 2021/22 season would be Fofana’s final one with the Foxes. He made 28 appearances in the top flight, helping his team to an eighth-place finish with 52 points – 4 behind a European spot.

    Speaking of European football, Leicester and Fofana were knocked out of the Europa League after finishing in 3rd place in their group, finishing behind Napoli (Italy) and Spartak Moscow (Russia). This meant they would now find themselves in the Europa Conference League, where they would make it to the semi-final, where they agonisingly lost 3-2 on aggregate against Italian side AS Roma. Roma were the eventual winners, beating Feyenoord 1-0 in the final.

    Fofana had made his comeback against Stade Rennais in the Round of 16 after suffering a broken leg in a pre-season friendly against Villarreal.

    Impressive performances caught the eye of Chelsea, who decided to sign him on 31st August 2022 on an initial 7-year contract. His debut for the Blues came against West Ham United, with Fofana helping to secure a 2 – 1 home victory at Stamford Bridge on 3rd September 2022.

    Overall, in his first season with the club, Wesley Fofana made 20 appearances in all competitions, with Chelsea finishing in 12th place in the Premier League with 44 points. His season was interrupted several times by injury.

    Then, in December 2021, Malo Gusto signed his first-ever professional contract with Lyon before signing a new contract in June 2022, which would expire in 2024. Ahead of the 2021/22 season, he was very involved in the first team in pre-season, being named man of the match in a 4-1 friendly win against German side Wolfsburg. He started his first match for Lyon in the opening match of the 2021/22 Ligue 1 season against Brest on 7th August, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

    The 2022/23 season followed, and Gusto remained a regular starter for Lyon, making 21 appearances in Ligue 1, performing well and contributing to a campaign that saw his team finish 7th with 62 points, missing out on European football by just a few points. In January 2023, Gusto was announced as a Chelsea player, with the Blues loaning him back to the French club for the remainder of the season.

    Ian Maatsen is a Dutch left-back (5ft 6in) who signed for Chelsea from PSV Eindhoven’s academy on 1st July 2018 for a reported fee of €110k. His contract with the Blues is set to expire on 30th June 2024. Maatsen has been used as left back/left wing-back for much of his career, but he has been utilised as a left winger, centre back and central midfielder too.

    In 2009, Maatsen signed to Feyenoord’s youth academy at seven before being released in 2013. The defender moved on to fellow Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam, with whom he spent two years before signing for PSV Eindhoven in 2015. In the 2017/18 season, he made eight appearances for the club’s U17 side and played 13 times for the U17s in the Div. 1 Spring, assisting two goals throughout the campaign.

    Upon signing for Chelsea in July 2018, he made his debut for the club’s Under 18s side in the FA Youth Cup before going on to make ten appearances in the U18 Premier League season, assisting four times and scoring his first and only goal of that campaign in a 3 – 1 victory against London rivals Arsenal. He also appeared for Chelsea as a substitute in the Checkatrade Trophy (now known as the Papa John’s Trophy) against Newport County.

    Then, in the 2019/20 season, Ian Maatsen played 14 times in the Premier League 2 for the Chelsea U23 side and appeared in the FA Youth Cup, EFL Trophy, the UEFA Youth League and the Carabao Cup. His single Carabao Cup appearance came in a 24-minute cameo in an emphatic 7 – 1 victory against League Two side Grimsby Town at Stamford Bridge. He then signed a contract extension to 2024 on his 18th birthday.

    Maatsen did make six appearances for Chelsea’s Under 23s side before signing for EFL League One club Charlton Athletic on loan for the duration of the 2020/21 season.

Thirty-four of these appearances came in the third tier, with the club finishing 7th in the table with 74 points – missing out on the promotion play-offs on goal difference.

    Following this highly impressive season, Maatsen made the step up to the Championship for his next loan spell, joining Coventry City for a season-long loan for the 2021/22 campaign. Maatsen made the step up seem seamless, becoming a mainstay for the Sky Blues throughout the season, making 40 appearances in the league, scoring three and assisting once. Coventry finished 12th that season with 64 points.

The Dutch defender made 39 appearances in which he enjoyed his most productive season so far in his career, scoring four goals whilst also providing six assists overall. Burnley went on to win the league title convincingly after accumulating 101 points from 46 matches, ten ahead of Sheffield United, who also got automatically promoted to the Premier League.

    Ian Maatsen has featured heavily in pre-season so far for Chelsea, which makes it more likely that the Dutch defender will have a part to play for Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea side throughout the 2023/24 season.

  • #31 Malang Sarr

    Malang Sarr is a French central defender (6ft 0in) playing for Chelsea, who he joined from French Ligue 1 Club OGC Nice back on 27th October 2020 on a free transfer, signing an initial five-year contract with the Stamford Bridge Club.

Still, they did at least participate in the UEFA Europa League Group Stages that season, where they would exit the competition at the first knockout round stage after losing 4 – 2 on aggregate against Russian heavyweights Lokomotiv Moscow.

During his time at the Zbroyari (Gunsmith), he made 10 appearances in all competitions, all in the Ukrainian Premier League. Unfortunately, Mudryk and his teammates suffered relegation.

    He spent the first half of this (2022/23) season at Shakhtar, making 18 appearances in all competitions, scoring 10 goals whilst also getting 8 assists for his teammates.

    The forward began his career in his native Ivory Coast with Abidjan City before he signed for the Amadou Diallo Football Academy in 2019. After some impressive performances, numerous clubs throughout Europe took notice of Fofana – the club that secured his signature was Norwegian giants Molde in February 2021. This was Fofana’s first professional contract.

    The Norwegian season comes to an end in early December every year, with the 2021 season starting in May of that year. This was Fofana’s first season since joining the club.

    In Fofana’s first season with his new teammates, the forward made 26 appearances in all competitions, finding the back of the net on 3 occasions. His first goal came against German club Hoffenheim in the Europa League, where he scored the equaliser in a 3-3 draw against Der Blau (The Blues) late on in the second half (74’).

    Molde went on to reach the Round of 16 of the Europa League after being defeated 3-2 on aggregate by Spanish side Granada. They finished runners up in the Eliteserien (Norwegian Top Flight), finishing just 3 points behind Champions Bodø/Glimt.

    The 2022 season saw Fofana go to another level. He made 24 appearances in the league, scoring 15 goals with 5 assists. Not only did he score 2 goals on Molde’s way to winning the NM-Cup (Norwegian League Cup), Fofana and his teammates successfully won the 2022 Eliteserien title. They finished an impressive 18 points clear of 2021 league Champions Bodø/Glimt, who had to settle for 2nd place.

    He showed great form in the UEFA Europa Conference League that season, scoring four goals. Molde failed to make it to the group stage, losing on penalties in the third qualification round against Turkish side Trabzonspor after the two clubs played out a 4-4 draw on aggregate over the two legs.

    Fofana earned his first senior international cap for Ivory Coast in a 4-0 friendly win against Burundi.

    This form caught the eye of a number of clubs throughout Europe, and it was Chelsea FC who won the race for the Ivory Coast international in January 2023 for a reported fee of €13m (£11.4m).

    At the time of writing, David Datro Fofana has made 3 first team appearances for the Blues since joining the club.

    His first club was Crystal Palace, whom he joined at the age of just 9 in 2011. After spending 3 years at the Eagles, Madueke signed for Tottenham Hotspur’s Academy in 2014. After scoring 25 goals in just 22 games, he became captain of the Under 16 team before going on to represent the U18s aged just 15.

    Whilst Madueke never made a senior appearance for the Lilywhites, he did seal a transfer to Eredivisie (Dutch Top Flight) club PSV Eindhoven in June 2018. He immediately began playing for the Rood-witten’s (Red and whites) U19s, whilst being coached by ex-Manchester United forward Ruud van Nistelrooy.

    Madueke transitioned quickly into the Jong PSV (Second/Reserve team) side in the 2019/20 where he went on to score four goals and an assist in just 5 starts in the Eerste Divisie (Dutch Second Division).

    He was on a rapid rise, making numerous substitute appearances for the first team against the likes of arch rivals for Ajax that same season. His full senior debut for the club came in an away match in the Eredivisie against Groningen.

    The 2020/21 season saw Madueke become a regular starter for PSV, making a total of 32 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring 9 goals (and 8 assists) for his teammates. It was a second place finish for Madueke and his team that season with rivals Ajax winning the league title.

    His first senior goal for the club was in a 2-1 league win against Emmen at the Phillips Stadion (PSV’s Home Stadium).

    In the Europa League Madueke and PSV won their group with 12 points, finishing ahead of Granada (Spain), PAOK (Greece) and Omonia (Cyprus). They went on to lose 5-4 on aggregate in the Round of 32 against Greek club Olympiacos.

PSV missed out on the league title once again to Ajax, but this time it was made more agonising by the fact that only 2 points separated the two clubs at season’s end.

    The club were also in the Europa League once more, but finished third and being knocked out of the competition. The other members of their group were AS Monaco (France), Real Sociedad (Spain) and Sturm Graz (Austria).

    Despite being knocked out of the Europa League, they did enter that season’s Europa Conference League where they were knocked out in the Quarter Final by Leicester City 2-1 on aggregate.

    A personal highlight for Madueke that season was a brace in a 4-0 win against rivals Ajax in the Johan Cruyff Shield (Dutch version of the English Community Shield).

    Having spent half of this season at PSV (2022/23), Madueke made 9 appearances, scoring 2 goals. The forward signed for Chelsea for a reported fee in the region of £28.5m (€33m).

    Nationality: France

    Christopher Nkunku is a French forward (5ft 10in) who signed for Chelsea from Bundesliga club RB Leipzig on 20th June 2023, signing a six-year contract. The fee that took him to Stamford Bridge was a reported £52 million after triggering the player’s €60 million release clause.

    The Frenchman scored 16 goals in the Bundesliga alone last season, making him the joint top goal scorer in the league, tied with Werder Bremen’s Niclas Füllkrug.

    Nkunku is a product of the Paris Saint-Germain youth academy, which he joined aged 13 in 2010. In the 2014/15 season, he made four appearances in the UEFA Youth League, scoring a goal and collecting an assist. PSG missed out on the knockout stages by a point after finishing third in their group.

    A significant moment came for Nkunku on 8th December 2015 when he made his professional debut as a late substitute for Les Perisiens in a 2-0 Champions League win against Shakhtar Donetsk, aged 18.

    Fast forward to the 2015/16 season, and in addition to his 5 Ligue 1 appearances, he also made nine appearances in that season’s UEFA Youth League, during which he scored three goals whilst also providing three assists. PSG went on to finish as runners-up this time around, and ironically for Nkunku, his side was defeated 2-1 by his new club Chelsea.

    Nkunku made 16 senior appearances in all competitions for PSG in 2016/17, scoring his first-ever professional goal for the club in a 7-0 Coupe de France victory against Bastia on 7th January 2017.

    The forward found himself in the starting eleven more regularly in the 2017/18 season, making 27 appearances in all competitions, with 20 coming in Ligue 1. He scored four league goals, with the club winning the Ligue 1 title once again.

    His debut for Die Roten Bullen (The Red Bulls) came in a DFB Pokal match against VFL Osnabruck on 11th August 2019, where the Bundesliga side won 3-2. Nkunku’s league debut came just a few days later in an emphatic 4-0 victory against Union Berlin, with the Frenchman also scoring his maiden goal for the club in this match.

    The 2019/20 season also saw the Frenchman become the first player since Szabolcs Huszti in 2012 to register four assists in a single Bundesliga match. Nkunku did it in a 5-0 victory against Schalke. The club also reached its first-ever Champions League semi-final, where they went on to lose 3-0 to PSG.

    Overall, Nkunku quickly settled into life at Leipzig, scoring five goals and providing 15 assists in his 32 league appearances alone. RB Leipzig finished 3rd in the Bundesliga with 66 points, securing qualification for the Champions League.

    The 2020/21 season was another excellent one for Nkunku, who got six goals and seven assists in 28 Bundesliga matches, helping his club to yet another top four finish.

    Nkunku would win his first piece of silverware since he joined RB Leipzig in the 2021/22 season when he was part of the team to win the DFB Pokal after beating SC Freiburg 4-2 on penalties. In the Bundesliga, the Frenchman was in irresistible form, scoring 20 goals and collecting 15 assists in 34 appearances, with Leipzig finishing 4th that season.

    The 2022/23 season saw Nkunku and Leipzig win a second successive DFB Pokal title, this time beating Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 in the final, with Nkunku scoring the game’s opening goal. On top of this, the Frenchman scored 16 goals and got six assists in his 25 Bundesliga appearances last term, helping his club to a 3rd place finish with 66 points, five behind Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, who finished 1st and 2nd respectively.

The 2021/22 season also saw him make his La Liga debut for the Villarreal first team, coming on as a substitute in a 2-0 win against Real Betis.

    The 2022/23 season saw Jackson start to turn heads, and his season began well, scoring his first goal in the top flight of Spanish football on 13th August 2022 in a 3-0 away win against Real Valladolid. As mentioned, Jackson got 12 goals and four assists in La Liga last term.

    The Yellow Submarine ended last season with a 5th place finish with 64 points and five adrift of Real Sociedad, who occupied the final Champions League qualification spot in 4th place.

He signed a 5-year contract with the Blues that is set to expire on 30th June 2028. Moreira primarily plays as a left winger, but he’s also been utilised as a left midfielder and a right winger.

    Moreira’s career began with Belgian club Standard Liege, with whom he spent time in the youth academy, working his way through the ranks before leaving the club in 2020. He did train with fellow Belgian club Lierse Kempenzonen, but this move fell through after the Belgian federation decided not to approve his move to the club. But, with his dad living in Lisbon, Moreira joined Benfica in August 2020, where he also signed his first professional contract.

    Life for the forward with The Eagles began with him playing for Benfica’s Under 23 side, with Moreira taking part in the latter half of the 2020/21 season. He made six appearances in a season which saw the under 23 side finish 4th in their group with points from 12 matches.

    Benfica then came face to face with fierce rivals Sporting Clube de Portugal in the Quarter Finals, and the Eagles triumphed 4-0. This emphatic victory booked them a spot in the semi-finals, where they would face Juventus. This was a much closer contest, with the match ending 2-2 before Benfica managed to edge their Italian counterparts 4 – 3 on penalties. The Final now awaited them, with Austria’s Red Bull Salzburg standing in their way.

    Diego Moreira and his Benfica teammates certainly did not seem to feel any pressure in the final, beating Red Bull Salzburg 6-0 at the Colovray Stadium in Nyon, Switzerland. Neto (Still at Benfica), Henrique Araújo (still at Benfica), Cher Ndour (now of Paris Saint-Germain) and Luis Semedo (now of Sunderland AFC) were all on the scoresheet as Benfica won the UEFA Youth League for the first time in the club’s history.

    Fast forward to 13th May 2022, when Diego Moreira was handed his First Team and Professional debut for Benfica by Nélson Veríssimo, the club’s interim Head Coach at the time. His debut was in a 2-0 away victory in the Primeira Liga against Paços de Ferreira.

    In the 2022/23 season, Moreira spent most of it playing for Benfica’s Youth team, making 24 appearances in the Liga Sabseg (Portuguese Second Tier), scoring three goals whilst getting two assists to boot. While Benfica was eliminated in the group stage of that season’s UEFA Youth League (3rd, behind Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain), Moreira still contributed a goal and two assists in his five appearances.
