The Chelsea striker has failed to make an impact under the German manager
Ever since Thomas Tuchel has taken over charge of Chelsea, Tammy Abraham has seen his career dwindle. The Englishman has failed to have a telling impact on the pitch under the German, performances which have gradually lead to Tuchel deciding to ditch the striker entirely.
Failing to feature for the club on a string of occasions off late, Tammy’s future at Chelsea looks to be up in the air at the moment. Speaking ahead of his side’s encounter against Crystal Palace in the Premier League, Tuchel admitted he was yearning for more from the striker at the moment.
Tuchel Not Impressed By Tammy
“I cannot do a decision on the personal goals of players. Kepa has the goal to play for Spain but this can’t influence my decisions. I’ve got to do what I believe is best for Chelsea,” Tuchel said when quizzed about players’ Euro ambitions.
“Tammy has had a rough time. He started twice or three times and substituted for tactical reasons at half-time. He’s not had the impact we wish and demand from him.
“He then got injured, lost the connection and possibility to play for his place the squad. Now suddenly we’re in the decisive part of the season, where it’s not so easy to bring injured players into the shape.
“We’ve only got three changes and a big handicap. It’s up to Tammy to do everything possible. We have 22 players on the pitch and it’s very hard to select 18 for Premier League matches. In the offensive position it’s possible to have a huge impact in small minutes. We demand a lot of Tammy, he demands a lot of himself.”
Chelsea who returned to winning ways against Porto with a 2-0 win will now be looking to paper over the cracks come their Premier League appointment. The side will be clashing heads with Crystal Palace this weekend after being earlier routed 5-2 by West Brom.
