He pulled me in’: Chalobah reveals wholesome moment when Tuchel told him he would be staying at Chelsea

One of the best early stories in Chelsea’s season has been the emergence of Trevoh Chalobah as a viable starter in this Blues side.

The defender was huge in helping Chelsea win the UEFA Super Cup, along with impressing greatly in the first 2 Premier League games.

Chalobah opened up to chelseafc.com about the moment he found out from Thomas Tuchel that he wouldn’t be leaving the club on loan.

He said: “I spoke to the manager between the Palace and Arsenal games and he told me he wanted me to stay, so I moved over to the first-team building that week.

“Before that I was changing over at the Academy, but now I’ve fully moved over. It was a nice feeling when the manager told me.

“He spoke to me after training and told me how well I’d done, that I’d taken my chance in pre-season and in the games. He said he thinks I can be a good asset to the team and learn from the other players and support them.

“Even until the day he told me I didn’t really believe it would happen. Even after the Super Cup I thought he’d probably want me to go on loan.

“After the Palace game it was a bit half-and-half, but until he pulled me into the office and gave me the news I couldn’t really believe it.”

Watching another academy graduate perform at a high level for the first team is a huge victory for the Blues and if he can keep growing, Chalobah has the chance to cement his place as a Chelsea starter for years to come.
