“It’s A Goodbye For Him?” As Tuchel Opens Up On Difficult Situation Of Chelsea Star
“It’s a goodbye for him?” As Tuchel opens up on difficult situation of Chelsea star
According to the Mirror, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has opened up on the current situation of striker Tammy Abraham amid question marks over his future.
Abraham, a product of the Chelsea youth academy, had his big breakthrough in the first-team last term. And even though he made a solid impression, the England international hasn’t been a regular in the side this term.
The arrival of Timo Werner last summer coupled with Olivier Giroud’s contributions saw Abraham slip down the pecking order of things at Chelsea.
Things have gotten much harder for him under Tuchel, who hasn’t used him all that regularly. This, despite Abraham being our top scorer this term with 12 goals. As a result, speculations of a summer exit have been doing the rounds of late.
Tuchel, while speaking to the press, admitted that Abraham has had a tough time and also added that the team has been doing very well without him.
“Tammy had a bit of a rough time. He started twice or three times and was twice substituted for tactical reasons at half-time. He could not have the impact he demands from himself and we wish from him.
“Then he was injured and lost a bit the connection and possibility to fight for his place in the squad. The squad has played very well without him, we’ve had a lot of results without him.”
