Former Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero has hailed Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel as a fantastic coach.

According to Caballero, Tuchel improved every Chelsea player in just six months after his appointment as Chelsea boss.

He told Football London: “He is a fantastic coach, has very good staff and the things that he explains are very clever and close to the players.

“The people that work with him are also very good and keep the great atmosphere inside the team.

“He also teaches very well, the way that he wants to play, how he wants to break the other team and the training and games last season were very good for every player.

“Even in just six months, every player learnt a little bit to become a better player.

“I believe it is because he is a coach that is very, very, very demanding.

“He is demanding at both ends of the pitch in both boxes. He started so well last season, even in the first games, that when he planned the games he just wanted to attack with five players and defend with five players at the beginning of his run as Chelsea manager.

“From that, all the players adapted with their movements on the pitch and that has worked well.

“But, as I said to a friend, every line of the Chelsea players this season has started very well, from both goalkeepers, and I say both because they are both giving points to the team, and the defenders, midfielders and also the set-pieces are also giving points to Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

“All the things are working well.”
