Joe Cole was on BT Sport’s Champions League coverage of Chelsea – as ever – and he made some really interesting points about Thomas Tuchel’s impact at Chelsea.
We all know about the tactical work he does, but Cole mentioned that “he uses his squad brilliantly.”
It’s true – from keeping young players happy to keeping his tired legs fresh, Tuchel knows when to use his first team and which to rotate.
The way he brought Ben Chilwell into the team gradually with Marcos Alonso fading out was perfect evidence of that.
You can see the former winger speaking in the clip embedded here:
"I don't think a manager has come in at Chelsea and had the effect that's he's had."
"He's doing a marvelous job and Chelsea are very lucky to have him."
