Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has come out to say that he is concerned over the woes of Saul Niguez at the club. He recently urged fans to stop piling hate onto the struggling midfielder, and supporters have been reacting.
According to him, it is true that the Spaniard doesn’t feel the weight of responsibility yet as he felt at Atletico, but he won’t be the first player to struggle in the EPL.
Tuchel added that he’ll keep protecting his players from bad press and unfair criticism.
His words, “Does [Saul] feel that he is in the same role and responsibility as he had at Atletico? No, maybe not yet. Does he struggle? Yes, he struggles,”
“Was he the first player to struggle in the Premier League? No and he won’t be the last one. We protect our players and I will protect our players always. He played yesterday as a No.6, No.9 and as a wing-back.”
“Is that fair to him? No, also it is not. Put it into context and you will have a more moderate picture and reaction. I understand people are disappointed after yesterday but reactions like this are the reasons why I am not involved on social media.”
“It is why I protect myself and you can get carried away. I can only hope Saul does not read it and why should he? He knows what he needs to do to improve and he is doing everything.”
“He struggles at the moment and we are still trying to find the best version of him and will not stop pushing.”
