‘How I wish I have two of him’ – Thomas Tuchel hails Chelsea, player
Thomas Tuchel has made a speech that how I wish I have two of Reece James.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has reserved massive praise for Reece James ahead of the game against Manchester United.
James has been a top player for Thomas Tuchel, and he plays both as a right wing-back and right center-back for Chelsea.
According to Tuchel, he’d love to have a clone of Reece James, so they can both play as a wing-back and centre-back.
“I would love to have two of Reece James so the problem would be solved,” said Tuchel in his press conference.
“It’s 55 percent towards wing-back, 45 percent towards back three. It depends also on how the opponent plays against us. Do we expect a lot of possession? What is their structure for offensive transition?
“It can sometimes be very helpful for us if Reece plays in the back three, to be the first guy to cover in transition with his speed and physicality.
“I’m leaning a bit more his very best position is the wing-back position when he can be more decisive, but it’s more demanding. The next step is to be a regular player over 55 or 60 matches. Then we decide, but both positions are filled with top quality with him.”
