We don’t doubt his quality’: Thomas Tuchel reveals how Saul reacted to tough Chelsea debut

“We have guys who experienced the same difficult start as him,” Thomas Tuchel told a press conference about Saul’s debut for Chelsea.

“This team is a very supportive team so everybody shared their experiences also from their first matches in the Premier League. When I was on the sideline for my first match, it was at another level.

“We don’t doubt his quality and his ability to adapt. It takes maybe a bit of time to get it off his shoulders but he is at an age where he does not worry too much. He’s self-confident.

“Everybody in the dressing room, everybody in the club knows him very well because we played against him many times.

“The best way to react is what he did, he trains good and he trains with intensity and this will prepare him for the next time he is on the pitch for us.”

Saul Niguez had a debut to forget for the Blues, as he was deservedly hooked off at half-time of the Aston Villa win. Back then, even Tuchel admitted that the Spanish midfielder made some ‘big mistakes’.

Of course, it’s way too early to say that Saul’s fate is sealed but with N’Golo Kante back in the squad, the new signing faces an uphill battle if he wants to play regularly for Chelsea.
