Chelsea fan favourite FORGETS he plays for Chelsea and has to be reminded halfway through interview | The Sun

CHELSEA loanee Levi Colwill forgot he was still a Blues player after helping Brighton clinch Europa League football.

The centre-back, 20, joined the Seagulls on loan at the beginning of the season and has thrived under Roberto De Zerbi.

But he is set to return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season – where European football will not be on offer as Chelsea have succumbed to a bottom half finish in the Premier League table.

However, Colwill, who has been linked with a move to Manchester City or Liverpool, had to be reminded he would be returning to the Blues when speaking to The Athletic.

"I forgot for a minute," he said after remembering he was heading back to Chelsea in the coming months.

It goes to show just how much he has enjoyed his time on the South Coast – where he has made 23 appearances in all competitions.

And he could not speak more glowingly about the set-up at the Amex.

He added: "Amazing. When Roberto came in [last September], he just changed things.

"His mentality as a manager is world class and he is definitely going to be one of the best managers in the world — if he’s not already.

"That’s what you need at a club like this, that’s what you need to take us to the next level. I never realised how good the players are and he’s come in and playing the style — oh, it’s amazing.

"It fits everyone in the changing room. That’s why they are all playing outrageous football."

De Zerbi has admitted he would like to work with Colwill for another "two, three, four years".

But Chelsea are expected to recall him at the end of the season, with Blues fans buzzing to see what he can do in West London.

On social media, one said: "Make him a bloody starter next season!!"

Another added: "We need him. I can see the star potential in him. Let him compete with Badiashile and see how he fares."

And a third replied: "Play him and give him a bumper contract."

Colwill's deal with Chelsea runs until 2025.
