Chukwunonso Tristan “Noni” Madueke (born 10 March 2002) is an English professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Chelsea, as a winger and attacking midfielder.
Upon signing for PSV in June 2018, he was described by the club as “a creative, physically strong left-footed midfielder”. Madueke’s manager at PSV, Roger Schmidt, stated Madueke was “able to read situations, get to the right positions and be in the right place”. The BBC described him as a “direct, powerful and versatile attacker” who was inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Early Life and Career
Madueke is of Nigerian Igbo descent. Born in Barnet, England on March 10, 2002. Madueke moved to the small village of Wintelre with his mother upon signing for PSV.
Schooling in Barnet was important, but playing football in a Sunday League team was the absolute focus. Noni Madueke started with King George FC in Welwyn Garden City and played Saturday football and lived in Hatfield. He came to them and started training in a group for kids in a waiting list.
Noni’s talent was obvious from day 1, but above that, he was keen to learn. Back then, Noni (who played lots of local football) had this self-belief that his skillsets had met the minimum prerequisite to getting noticed by scouts.
Thankfully, that happened as a football scout from Crystal Palace FC found him interesting. On that memorable day, Noni excelled more than anyone in a London tournament.
The youngster’s parents were approached, and an invitation for academy trails at South London followed.
To the joy of everyone, Noni Madueke passed the trials. That saw him move to the Crystal Place academy, which is no doubt a long journey from South London.
With Crystal Palace academy, Noni had the best time of his boyhood footballing years. This is what he said about his time with the Eagles’ academy.
