Tuchel Challenges Abraham To Fight For Chelsea Place

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has called on Tammy Abraham to fighf for his place in the team following his exclusion from the squad against Manchester United on Sunday.

Abraham was surprisingly left out of the squad for the 0-0 draw at the Old Trafford with France striker Olivier Giroud leading the line for the Blues.

Tuchel challenged the Englishman to accept the situation and work to force his way back into contention.

“This situation is totally natural, he has to do exactly what he does; train well, be in a good mood and accept that he is a striker for Chelsea so this is the highest competition in Europe,” said Tuchel.

“When you play for Chelsea, it is a difficult decision I have to take and I am very very happy when I have to take them because it means everybody is on board.

“This is what you sign up for if you are a player for Chelsea, a coach for Chelsea, that these moments arrive.

“There is no other answer to it other than to accept it and be there on Monday to fight for your place in the squad. I am sure he will do it.”

Abraham’s Chelsea contract runs until 2023, after the 23-year-old activated an extra year in his existing deal at the back-end of last season.

At that point Abraham had been expected to complete a new long-term Chelsea deal without any issue.

    Hehehe, e don dy start small small. Very soon u go get flat for bench (like Tomori: Isi pegeon lol) and next thing, get shipped out on loan to one obscure club like that… Lol… @toni, I think the updates are important so that we can monitor his progress having made our national team look inferior by virtue of his decision to play for england. I’d never forget his and tomoris tweets immediately they got the iv to the 3 lions. They indirectly mocked us.
