Blues fans will love this! Thomas Tuchel tells fans which Chelsea player has‘blown him away’
Thomas Tuchel has praised N’Golo Kante’s fitness levels after he helped Chelsea beat Premier League Champions Liverpool.
Tuchel has done an amazing job since he took over at Chelsea just a few months ago and has now gone unbeaten in his first ten games as Blues boss, with his latest result helping the club close in on a top four spot.
Kante created the only goal of the match as Mason Mount slotted home a brilliant curling finish to seal a 1-0 away win at Anfield, and Tuchel has opened up and praised the 29-year old Frenchman, who has been linked with a shock move away from the club in recent weeks.
WHAT DID TUCHEL SAY AFTER THE WIN AGAINST LIVERPOOL
“It was clear from the first second of training what this guy is capable of doing,” Tuchel told reporters ahead of the visit of Carlo Ancelotti’s side. “It’s unbelievable.
“You see his intensity in the physical report after matches and you think they may have tracked two players and put it into the same sheet. He’s unbelievable in what he delivers in terms of intensity, in terms of ball recoveries, his devotion to the group is world-class, at the highest level.
“I am very, very happy he is in our squad. He has come back from an injury so he will not play every 90 minutes before the international break. We will manage him and we do that with the physical coaches.
“We have to take care that he is fit until the international break and when he comes back, we hope he has the momentum where we can rely on him in every game.
“I’m very happy to have him, Jorginho and Kova (Mateo Kovacic) in defensive midfield. This is exactly the level we need to win games. So, I am super happy with all of them.”
