Chelsea manager Graham Potter has praised Armando Broja after the Albanian netted in the Blues’ 3-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on October 8.
Broja stepped off the substitutes’ bench in the 72nd minute and then scored his first goal in Chelsea colors in the 89th minute to wrap up a comfortable victory.
The Albanian striker received the ball on the edge of the box before unleashing a powerful effort past Jose Sa. Broja has had to wait for his opportunity at Stamford Bridge, he has made nine appearances in all competitions, but all of those have come from the bench.
Chelsea supporters will be hoping his goal against Wolves is the first of many and Potter lauded the forward following his exploits, telling BBC Sport:
“Nice at the end for Armando to score. I’ve been here three or four weeks so taking no credit, great finish nice pass too and whenever he comes on he works hard for the team. He’s had to be patient but he’s been working hard in training and it’s nice for him to score.”
Broja has risen up the youth ranks at Stamford Bridge and is now part of the senior squad. He has spent two spells on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem and Premier League outfit Southampton .
