Chelsea Academy graduates and their Stamford Bridge standout moments
PL2 is back! Come and watch the stars of the future play their home opener at Stamford Bridge.
The young Dutchman is an adaptable player who can play at left-back, wing-back, centre-back or in central midfield, and that versatility was utilised in his maiden season in England as he featured in a number of defensive positions for our academy teams. His first Chelsea goal came in a 3-1 youth team win against Arsenal in September before his development squad debut later that month in the Checkatrade Trophy away at Newport County. A Netherlands Under-17 international, he featured throughout our run to the UEFA Youth League finals weekend.
Maatsen signed his first professional contract at the club in March 2019.
