Chelsea bose Thomas Tuchel has hailed Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham ahead of Monday’s Premier League game against Newcastle United.
According to Tuchel, the England striker has the fighting spirit needed to succeed at Chelsea.
“I’m not aware of the contract situations of my players because I don’t want to be involved with judging this when I’m making the decisions of who’s playing and who’s not,” Thomas Tuchel said in a press conference.
“He deserved to play at Barnsley. He had a difficult game against Burnley at home so he suffered from a tactical shift at half-time and did not play against Tottenham and Sheffield United.
“That’s why he deserved to play because he is a very positive guy, very clear, very ambitious.
“I like that he made his way on the loans and overcame obstacles in his career when he went on loan. He always scored for his teams. He was always there. He has the spirit to make it at Chelsea. This is one of the toughest challenges you can face but he is ready for that.
“He was absolutely ready to suffer and for that, he has all my credit. It’s a good new start for him to step up and show that he is important for us.”
