Giggs Bemoans Leipzig’s Ampadu Snub

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has expressed concern over Chelsea midfielder Ethan Ampadu’s disappointing loan spell at RB Leipzig. Ampadu’s pre-season move to the Bundesliga was hailed as a smart move given that the teenager has had limited opportunities since joining Chelsea from Exeter in 2017.

But the 19-year-old has yet to make his Leipzig debut, despite being a regular member of their matchday squad, and the teenager’s only senior appearance this season came in Wales’ European Championship qualifying win against Azerbaijan last month.

Giggs feels Ampadu is at an age where he needs to be playing regularly and is disappointed that is not happening in Germany.

Speaking ahead of Wales’ Euro 2020 qualifier in Slovakia on Thursday, the former Manchester United star said: “The last few camps he’s looked so much better in training. “He is such a talent it’s hard to ignore. But it’s very difficult for him to play 90 minutes and back-to-back games, because he’s not had the minutes.”

Giggs says he has not spoken to Chelsea manager Frank Lampard or anyone else at Stamford Bridge regarding Ampadu’s situation at a club who are fifth in the German top flight.
But he is planning a scouting trip to Germany soon, with Schalke winger Rabbi Montondo and St Pauli defender James Lawrence also playing there.
