Thomas Tuchel Tactics at Chelsea : The player has detailed what life has been like under Tuchel
Although he’s only been at Chelsea for a couple of days, Thomas Tuchel has hit the ground running instantly. With Chelsea taking on Wolverhampton only a day after his arrival, the new manager was seen partaking in his first training session upon landing in London itself.
While it will take some time for the German to implement his style of football at the club and determine his best playing 11, there were clear signs of what he wants to do going forward. The manager deployed a three man defence against Wolverhampton along with choosing a playing 11 not many had envisaged.
Callum Hudson-Odoi who earned a start in Tuchel’s first match has now gone onto detail what it’s like to work under the new boss.
Callum Talks About Tuchel’s Gameplan
“For myself he wants me to be direct as much possible and keep getting at the full-backs and defenders as much as possible,” Hudson-Odoi told Stadium Astro.
“I feel like he knows all the attacking players can score and create goals and he wants us all to be direct and keep pushing to try to get goals and assists for the team.
“But for myself he just told me to go up and down that line, keep being direct, stay as high and wide as possible and try and get as quick as possible.
“But also keep trying to break the line and keep making sure you’re doing different movements to get on the ball, which obviously I really understand what he’s trying to get at.
“He’s trying to make sure from yesterday [in training] that he wants us to keep going in behind, find different passes, find different ways of breaking teams instead of just trying to beat them every time with the ball.
“So it’s good what he’s trying to imply, it worked well today but it’s unfortunate we didn’t get the result.”
