Opinion: Thomas Tuchel tells us precisely what we’d like this summer season

17 0

Just as the chant goes, “he knows exactly what we need” in reference to our head coach Thomas Tuchel, and in his latest press conference today, he has described ‘exactly what we need ‘ this summer.

It’s been clear for some time that this Chelsea squad is in need of a rebuild. Many players have either outstayed their welcome, have proven not to be good enough, or have just become deadwood at the club, and we know quite a few of them will be leaving, or at least asking to leave this summer.

Tuchel knows this and that is so clear from his latest comments on the up-and-coming summer transfer window, which you can find below.

“We are not improving the squad, we are rebuilding the squad. That is always challenging. But we are up for the challenge. What I can promise – if I can promise – that I will be here with positive energy.”

The truth is though, we need to do both, improve the squad AND rebuild it, and we can do both. I think the rebuild comments are more aimed at our defence, where are definitely losing two players this season and possibly even at least two more. So, our defence will need a rebuild for sure.

The rest of the squad needs improvements added to it, and some of the returning loanees will certainly do that, but we might need to replace further players in the squad as well.

Personally, if it was me, I’d be asking the whole squad to be absolutely truthful and answer whether they truly want to be playing for Chelsea or not next season and beyond, and if any of them said no, then kindly let them depart and replace them with players who DO want to be at this club.
