Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes Andreas Christensen hasn’t reached his limits at Chelsea and has revealed what the Dane must do to be a Chelsea legend like the likes of John Terry and Cesar Azpilicueta.

“I think it is important we accept the personality of every player,” Tuchel replied when asked if Christensen had matured this season.

“Some are louder, some aggressive, some calmer. He’s a calm guy, a very intelligent player, and sometimes you can maybe be misled by judging him from his personality.

“He is a hard defender and he is a guy who is not shy to have hard tackles and win challenges and step up in games.

“He found his place. He is very strong, very reliable and he has not reached his limits because at his age there is still room to improve. He can be a top defender for us in the next years and hopefully he will be because he comes from the academy.”

“He knows what it takes and he has improved massively so far but it is not done yet – you have to show it over and over,” Tuchel added.

“There are big examples in this club of what it takes to be a legend in defence and there is still a way to go but we are very happy so far.”
