Chelsea’s third choice goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli has heaped praise on Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.

The 29 year old, who arrived from Fulham on a free transfer during the summer, revealed Tuchel has made him feel welcome and wanted at Chelsea.

He said: “Tuchel made me feel so welcome, so wanted, and such a massive part of the squad. That small detail goes a long way mentally and physically.

“A lot of people in football are nice guys but this is a beautiful squad to be a part of, it really is. There is such a tight bond. I don’t know whether that is down to the manager and the group he has created, the atmosphere. They have all made me feel a part of things.”
