Former Blues Striker’s Son To Become Next Chelsea Star

There is nothing but delight at Stamford Bridge right now given how Chelsea’s academy has begun bearing fruit under Frank Lampard.

The Blues icon has quickly turned Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori into stars, with the English academy trio scoring ALL of Chelsea’s league goals so far this season.
Chelsea have scored 11 league goals this season – and they’ve all been netted by English academy graduates
He has also handed a debut to 18-year-old Scottish talent Billy Gilmour, while Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi will be part of the Blues’ first-team when they return from injury.
Despite this recent success for Chelsea’s much-lauded academy, the hunt for the next big thing has already kicked off.
And Chelsea’s next wonderkid may be the son of one of their former strikers – Andriy Shevchenko.
Shevchenko celebrated scoring the day after his son’s birth
Kristian is the second of Shevchenko’s four sons, and the legendary Ukrainian confirmed in an interview with vesti.ua that the 12-year-old is part of Chelsea’s academy.
“My second son is training at Chelsea Academy,” said Shevchenko. “This is a very good school, which brought up more than a dozen players of excellent level.”
Should Kristian follow in his father’s footsteps and become a world class footballer, he faces a selection dilemma over his international career.
He qualifies for Ukraine, obviously, but is also a British passport holder having been born and raised in London while his dad represented Chelsea.
According to The Sun, he may also be eligible for Poland and the United States through his mother, Kristen Pazik.
There is a long way to go yet before Kristian is ready to play for Chelsea – if he ever even is – but Lampard putting faith in the kids is sure to make every academy player believe they can make it right to the top at Stamford Bridge.
