Matt Miazga


Recommended Posts




Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Matt Miazga from New York Red Bulls.

The 20-year-old central defender has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract.

He said: ‘I am very happy to sign for Chelsea, a world-famous club with a reputation for major success. I am delighted to be in the Premier League, the best league in the world, and can’t wait to meet my team-mates and get going. 

‘I am still at the beginning of my career but I believe this is the place to develop and learn from some of the best players in the world.’

Miazga, born in New Jersey, joined the Red Bulls Academy in 2009 and signed his first professional contract four years later at the age of 17. He debuted for the Red Bulls soon after turning 18.

By the 2015 Major League Soccer season the tall, strong centre-back had established himself as a regular in the heart of a defence which helped the Red Bulls finish with the best regular-season record in North America. He was an ever-present in the subsequent play-off campaign which ended with a narrow two-legged defeat to Columbus Crew in the Conference final.

A fine reader of the game, Miazga also sampled continental football at Red Bulls appearing in the CONCACAF Champions League.

He made his debut for the US national team in November having represented his country at Under-20 and Under-23 level.

Anyone seen him play regularly in the MLS to comment on his potential to make the first team? Or this one of the sign a young player and make profit a few years later kind of deals?

Came across that article about Miazga and his personal life and while the piece didn't reveal too much, it does seem like he has a strong, positive attitude in whatever he does. If true, that's good and the question then would be whether he can adapt to the demands of the Premier League and European football.

Zouma and Miazga to hold down the fort for the next 10 years.

Zoumazga :worship: 

Get Cahill outta here.

Wait, hold DOWN the fort? Is the fort attached to a trillion helium filled balloon and about to float away and we need Zouma and Miazga to hold it down?!

Oh wow, a defender who actually engages the opponent and is pro-active.

Meanwhile, Cahill is moonwalking into the stands.

It could be a great partnership if Miazga were to be given the freedom to attack the ball and have Zouma provide the cover in case the tackle isn't made.
