“I want every Chelsea fan to know how good this 25 year old player is” – Tuchel reveals

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed he is very demanding of 25 year old Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek and wants every Chelsea fan to know how good the midfielder is.

“I did not say it because I was not happy before,” Tuchel said during the press conference on Friday.

“I would always like to repeat it, even now, because I see the potential, and I think that he knows about his potential.

“As an academy player, everybody was very aware of his potential, but the next step for him is to show it to everybody.

“Everybody in the stadium must go home knowing how good, how strong Ruben is.

“That is the next step, to actually put the potential on the street and drive the car as fast as possible.”

“I can only repeat, I am still happy with Ruben,” he added.

“He was part of a fantastic performance against Juventus — and this is what we expect because we can expect it from him.

“We will stay very demanding because of his potential.”
