Nigeria’s Chelsea star Faustino Adebola Rasheed Anjorin could benefit from new rule change if Premier League return next month.
The 18-year-old attacking midfielder rose through the Blues youth ranks before he made two senior appearances for Frank Lampard side during his team 7–1 whitewashed of Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup and also featured in a 4-0 league victory versus Everton in their last game before football was suspended.
Premier League could soon be making a return in June as players are expected to start filtering back to group training next after a decisive meeting today.
With the new Premier League rule stipulating that teams will be able to make up to five substitutions in a game, it could see the Nigeria-eligible youngster earn more appearances for Chelsea, and probably go on to enjoy a successful career at Stamford Bridge.
Anjorin has established himself as one of the most important players at Cobham this season, as he is currently the top scorer for the U23 side in the Premier League 2 with five goals and captains the U18s in the prestigious FA Youth Cup.
Anjorin has dual international eligibility born in Poole on the south coast of England he is a youth international for England having represented that nation at U17, U18 and U19 level but is still eligible to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria through his father.
