I Don’t Feel Pressure’: Chelsea’s New Signing Opens Up Ahead of Stamford Bridge Move

Kendry Paez, Chelsea’s new acquisition, is only 16 years old, but he is already a star in Ecuador and receives a lot of attention from the local media.

He was interviewed by ESPN’s SportsCenter today, and they talked about his first steps at Independiente Del Valle and what’s ahead in his career.

The recent move to Chelsea, disclosed by both clubs, was clearly a topic as well. The teenager stated that he is not concerned because he still has a couple of years left at the Ecuadorian club before joining the Blues in England.

“I don’t feel pressure, I am focused on Independiente, on the Libertadores and continue playing in the best way,” Kendry Paez told ESPN.

“To get there well I have to keep working, be focused on studying. It will be something special to share things with players like Enzo, with other special ones. It’s wonderful, but now I’m focused on Independiente Del Valle. There are two years to go, I know it goes by quickly and I’ll keep doing my thing here.”

With all of the expectations surrounding his future, including comparisons to Ecuadorian Ronaldo and Ecuadorian Messi, Paez made it a point to refute all of those similarities, insisting he’s ready to forge his own path in football.

“My name is Kendry, and I’m going to name Ecuador.” I’m going to stay true to myself; I don’t want to be compared to Messi. He’s one of a kind, the best. They can’t compare me to him since I’m still in the process. I need to work on my skills and obtain more experience. Later, perhaps with what I win, perhaps with Kendry Paez, the Ecuadorian. It’s just myself and nobody else.”

In a recent interview with Ecuadorian media, Independiente del Valle director Santiago Morales spoke about the transfer fee paid by Chelsea. Despite reports that the signing cost the Blues £16 million, the official insisted it was less.
