Ben Chilwell gives two-word verdict on missing out on Liverpool move

Leicester defender Ben Chilwell has said that he has “no regrets” about missing out on a move to Liverpool three years ago.

The left-back was targeted by the Reds in 2016 but talks between the two clubs eventually fell through, with Chilwell going on to sign a five-year deal with the Foxes and Jurgen Klopp bringing in Andy Robertson from Hull City a year later.

Chilwell was only 19 when being linked with Liverpool and has since gone on to start eight games for the senior England team, with Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate a big fan.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Foxes man said he is happy with how his career has unfolded so far.

“My agent was the one dealing with it all, talking to Liverpool and Leicester about the situation,” the 22-year-old said.

“At the time, I was trying to break into the Under-21 team at Leicester so I was just focused on getting into that and progressing into the first team here.

 

 

“Definitely no regrets. When I look at how the last four or five years have gone, starting eight games now for the England team is something I’m very happy with.

“Leicester was the right place for me to be at the time and the older players have helped me a lot. The staff have kept me grounded. Definitely no regrets.”

Meanwhile, Chilwell is one of four England talents that Manchester United are keen on signing as part of a blockbuster spending spree.
