Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed he’s very happy with his decision to stop Tino Anjorin from leaving the club on loan as it has helped him know the playmaker better.
Anjorin was given his first-team debut by ex-boss Frank Lampard last season, and has since played four more times.
Tuchel said: “I got to know Tino. I didn’t know much of him. I was very impressed because he’s very physical player.
“Tall guy, strong guy. He has the ability to keep the ball under pressure because he has the body for it.
“He has the physical ability to play and train with us on this level. He had some minutes with Barnsley in the cup game. We decided to keep him to get to know him better, not to send him out on loan.
“I’m happy about that. He is very strong in finishing. Very nice character. Nice guy from the academy.”
