According to Daily Mail, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel wants to install eight pole-mounted cameras around Chelsea’s Cobham training complex.

The report claims Chelsea have applied for planning permission to implement the technology at the Cobham training complex.

Tuchel reportedly wants the cameras installed at the training centre as it would help put players under the microscope and analyse their progress and give immediate feedback.

The Blues currently top the Premier League table but Tuchel wants to ensure they go all the way and secure the title after already delivering a memorable Champions League triumph last season.

Papers filed to the Elmbridge Borough Council by planning agent Nancy Stuart, via the Sun, read: “The club is now seeking to enhance its facilities through installing cameras around several of the pitches, which will enable coaches to provide more thorough feedback.

“Technology has been playing a bigger role in coaching in a wide range of sports in recent years

“Installing cameras at Cobham will allow training sessions to be recorded from a range of angles and heights. It is considered that this solution is preferable to the use of drones.

“The scheme will use leading camera and software technology to route back into the office for immediate analysis.”

A decision by Elmbridge Council – who require planning permission because Cobham is on green belt land – is expected to be made later this month.
