OPINION: Thomas Tuchel’s style of play is to blame for poor performances of some players at Chelsea



German tactician and former Paris Saint Germain manager, Thomas Tuchel has been remarkably incredible since his arrival at the Stamford Bridge barely one year ago after taking off from where Frank Lampard left off last year January.

Thomas Tuchel started with a good life by enjoying stellar performance from the squad which made them emerged as the Champions of Europe in the Porto’s all-English mouthwatering UCL final, against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City team at the Estadio do Dragao.

He was able to guide the team by finishing at the top four spot at the end of the season which was the initial target given to him when all hope was lost, but he proved a world class delivery as he qualified for two major finals in just his 100+ days in office.

Despite all these feats which was complemented with winning the UEFA Super Cup last year August against Unai Emery’s Villarreal team at Belfast as a perfect way to kick-start the new campaign, the Blues in recent time have been struggling to get desired results due to mixed run of form.

However, the poor performances of some players at the club could be traced to Thomas Tuchel’s style of play which has affected the team’s delivery as complained earlier by their summer record signing Romelu Lukaku.

Chelsea forward, Christian Pulisic is the latest player to complain about life at the club after the 23 years old football talent joined the club in 2019 with high expectations which has not been met, and as such not produce the spark that saw the club pay the record fee then for his services.

Christian Pulisic has been phenomenal since making his debut for the Stamford Bridge outfit playing in different roles as a winger, top striker among others under the German tactician with just three goals scored and one assist created in 19 appearances across all competitions so far this season.

The young football maestro has bitterly complained recently of been played out of his favourite position which was a similar comments made by the former Inter Milan forward, Romelu Lukaku.

The likes of Moroccan Hakim Ziyech has also been struggling to nail down a regular starting place at the Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel, and as such fell out of pecking order at the club.
