CHELSEA signing Kendry Paez made history as he played for Ecuador in a World Cup qualification win over Uruguay,
Since the arrival of Ted Boehly at the club last summer – the Club have been spending some serious money on some of the best young talents in the game right now.
It is clear that the American has a long-term plan at Stamford Bridge and has made sure that the club have beaten off their rivals for those talents – and it seems that they have once again done it with the signing of Paez
Paez is a talent that has been attracting all the big clubs in the game – and now the lad has become the youngest player ever to represent La Tri at just 16.
The teenager started the match against Uruguay, alongside future teammate Moises Caicedo, and impressed in a 2-1 win for the home side in Quito.
In doing so he became the youngest player ever to turn out for the Ecuador senior side, and the second youngest South American to ever play international football behind the one and only Diego Maradona.
And after the game – Caicedo opened up on the sensation – Caicedo told La Cancha Con Majo: ‘He’s a crack! The truth is there are times where I watch Independiente games, it’s good to see those talents in Ecuador because we know we have very good youth.
‘I’m very happy for him, for everything that he’s doing.
‘All I can tell him is keep on the right track, doing things really well, and he’s going to go really far because the talent he has is incredible.’
IS IT THE RIGHT DECISION TO JOIN CHELSEA NOW?
Fans will not get to see the lad make the move OFFICIALLY for a number of seasons – which is a shame – but hopefully he will not get forgotten about and lost in the system when he does arrive at the club.
