Tuchel speaks on the club dropping certain players

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has admitted his squad is over bloated ahead of the new season


Tuchel is set to trim his team ruthlessly this summer, with 42 players among his ranks.

According to him, “it is simply not possible” for the Blues to have such a number of players.

The German, who arrived at Stamford Bridge in January, led Chelsea to a Champions League triumph in May and has been rotating his numbers throughout a busy pre-season schedule.

While several players look automatically destined to spend the next term away from the club, either for good or on a temporary basis, other calls remain more difficult for Tuchel – but he has admitted that he is determined to offer a fair shot to all in contention.

“After the [pre-season] Arsenal game we wrote [all] the names down on the sheet because Sunday was the match against Arsenal and [on] Monday the group of players from England, Italy and Brazil came back,” he told the club’s website in addressing his squad size.

“So we wrote the names down to acknowledge that we would have 42 players in the building and it’s simply not possible.”

This comes weeks after the clubs epic champions league win.
