It’s been less than a month since Thomas Tuchel was appointed as Chelsea boss. The German gaffer has a reputation of being tactical, but he has insisted that isn’t the case at Cobham.

With no pre-season training with the squad, and coming right in, at the thick of the campaign, the new boss is keen on finding the balance.

According to Tuchel, he’s wary of giving out too much information, as he doesn’t want to overload his players.

The new boss said: “Now we’re learning and trusting each other while we are playing in the hardest competition in Europe and this is a good experience but there is no other way at the moment. There’s a lot of space to improve, now we have three days to prepare the next match and we will use them.

“It’s always a balance and this is what we think about when we’re in Cobham. How much training time do we get with the players? How much information do we give them? In the end less is more.

“There’s the constant management for us to deal with the sessions, with the input, with the support, or just sometimes leave them alone and let them process all the new movements, the new approach or their performances. It will also be like this during the next month, that we always think about how much can we give the team and what would be an overload.”
