Chelsea midfielder Erin Cuthbert wants to be known as one of the best midfielders in the Womens game

After months of speculation and rumours – Cuthbert ended all speculation recently after she put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep her at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2025.

But the fans favorite did not stop there, and she put in a player of the match performance against Tottenham last weekend and then another display in the 2-0 victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Now – she has opened up and admitted that she wants to be known as one of the best midfielders in the game – she told Sky Sports:

“I have made my case every year for the past six seasons! But Emma is someone who really values experience and so it has taken time for me to prove myself. That is what I have tried to do with all of my little cameo appearances here and there in midfield.

“I always wanted to be a midfielder. I joined Chelsea as a midfielder. Not a lot of people know that because I have played in so many different positions. But there comes a point where you want to know how good you can be. I think the manager sees me there now.

“I had to bide my time playing in a range of positions but I am finally in midfield. That is the position that I see myself playing for my whole career. That was a big factor in signing my new contract. I want to be a midfielder and I am happy that Emma sees me there.

She added: “You have to be open to learn. As disappointed as I was that I was not playing in midfield since I joined the club, it has taught me a lot. Playing in all of these different positions has taught me to have an appreciation and a better knowledge of the game.

“A lot of it in midfield is reading the game. I have more experience now than the average person my age given the number and the calibre of games that I have played in as well. When I play midfield now I have a better game knowledge, better understanding.
