Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tino Anjorin were the only three Chelsea players that reported for preseason training on Friday.
The rest of the squad will report for preseason later after participating in various competitions with their countries during the break.
Tuchel and the three Chelsea players were in great spirits as preseason training resumed on Friday.
Tuchel’s reunion with the three Chelsea players that reported for preseason was caught on camera and has since emerged on social media.
Tuchel shouts at his players as they stride over: “Three players and 24 coaches!”
The comments were in reference to the light session they had just completed with the Chelsea coaches.
Youngster Anjorin says to Tuchel after a hug: “It was fine!”
Tuchel then repeats the remark about three players and 24 coaches to Abraham.
The forward then joked following some additional conversation that cannot be heard: “I had a good time off. It wasn’t long enough though!”
Hudson-Odoi is the last over and tells Tuchel where he spent some of his spare time this summer.
“I was at Ghana,” he says. Tuchel then adds: “Do I want to know or better I don’t know?”
The winger then replied: “It’s good that you know!”
