Lesley Ugochukwu praises £26m Chelsea player after what he’s done on international duty

Chelsea defender Malo Gusto had a night to remember yesterday after earning his first senior cap for France

Malo Gusto, who’s still only 20, is currently away on international duty with his country.

France coach Didier Deschamps decided to give the Chelsea youngster a senior international debut on Friday night.

The Blues right-back came off the bench for France in an important 2-1 away win against the Netherlands, which secured their qualification for next summer’s Euro 2024 tournament.

Gusto celebrated his individual achievement on the international stage with an Instagram post.

Chelsea teammate Lesley Ugochukwu, who plays for France Under-21s side, praised him by posting “huge” in the comment section.

We agree it’s a huge moment for Gusto to represent France, one of the world’s elite international sides in recent years.

Gusto is looking like a really shrewd £26million signing (Sky Sports) for Chelsea.


The all-action right-back defends aggressively and with real quality. He’s got the ability with his crossing to contribute going forward, too.

He’s been unfortunate to miss the past few games for the Blues through suspension, but he appears to be great competition at full-back for Reece James.

Glen Johnson recently described Gusto as “technically gifted and quick” via GGRecon. We’re equally really liking what we’re seeing from him at Stamford Bridge.

The boost that representing France should give the full-back may be huge.
