Tomori Not Yet Forgotten – Tuchel

Tomori Not Yet Forgotten – Tuchel

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he has limited time to think about Fikayo Tomori’s progress on-loan at AC Milan due to the huge responsibility to move Chelsea towards a safe position in the Premier League.

The German tactician stated this in an interview ahead of the team’s clash against Southampton today (Saturday).

Recall that Tomori joined the Serie A giants in January until the end of the season, with an option for Milan to make the switch permanent for £25million.

However, Tuchel insisted that he’s delighted with his progress and will continue to keep a close tab on him.

“To be very honest, I have not spent too many minutes thinking about Tomori, not because I don’t like him or I don’t see his potential but because there was simply not time. Every minute I spend here at Cobham is a minute for the guys who are here.

“It’s tradition at Chelsea that many players are on loan and get minutes somewhere else when they cannot make it to regular minutes in here. This is good because it’s always the target for me to have players who can make it in different circumstances, who can show their qualities in different cultures and different clubs.

“It’s always a good sign so we will have this talk in the next weeks and months about all the guys who are on loan. Of course, I have a general impression of Tomori which means that he has high potential but I’m not into all the details right now.”
