Why It Is Wrong To Say That Thomas Tuchel Didn’t Give Chance To Young Players At Chelsea



According to a recent report from Telegraph UK, part of the reason why Chelsea appointed Graham Potter as Thomas Tuchel’s replacement was that the Former Brighton and Hove Albion Manager will give opportunity to young Players and Integrate Youths into First team squad.

This prompted a debate from a section of Chelsea Fans on the social media as they claimed that Thomas Tuchel didn’t give chance to young Players during his time at Chelsea, a claim which is far from the truth.

Of course, the permanent transfer of Players like Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham and Billy Gilmour among others which all happened during the management of Thomas Tuchel would somehow give the impression that the German Gaffer didn’t value youth but it’s important to know that there a lot of Young Players that thrived under Tuchel.

Thomas Tuchel literally gave Trevoh Chalobah his Chelsea career. The German Gaffer handed Chelsea debut to the Englishman at beginning of last season in the UEFA Super Cup Final against Villarreal. He later made 30 appearances across all competitions last season and even got himself a long-term contract with the Blues.

Reece James is the uncontested Right-back at Chelsea, this was possible because Thomas Tuchel trusted the Cobham academy graduate. Kai Havertz got better under Thomas Tuchel after his horrible performances under Frank Lampard. Mason Mount also improved under Thomas Tuchel, becoming one of the only 3 Players that registered double digits in League goals and Assists last season.
