His views left England fans stunned.
Loftus-Cheek is clearly enjoying a new lease of life following his season-long loan move to Crystal Palace and believes the best is yet to come.

A claim like that if true is devastating.
Loftus-Cheek advanced through Chelsea's youth ranks but barely received any first-team game time in three seasons with them. But Southgate has said his loan at Palace will be very useful if he wants to become one of the best. He's been the same since he was 12 I think. "So it's down to him to play week in, week out now and to a good level".
Chelsea loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek's potential and ability was a serious threat to the likes of Cesc Fabrgeas and N'Golo Kante. "I'll find out who played well tonight (for the Under-21s), who warrants the decision, and liaise with Aidy (Boothroyd) on that and go from there".
