Thomas Tuchel opens up and announces he is not at Chelsea to be loved

Get the Chelsea word out there!

Thomas Tuchel has opened up and told Chelsea fans that he does not care about being loved

Since his arrival at the club, Tuchel has presented an open, funny and charming image to the British media as well, for the most part, towards his playing squad, and A run of four wins and a draw since replacing Frank Lampard has obviously helped ease the German into his new surrounding.

The German has been able to bring the best out of previously inconsistent stars such as Callum Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho and Timo Werner while also endearing himself to the media, but he claims to be a tough taskmaster behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Newcastle on Monday night, Tuchel told Sky Sports: “Just because I’m trying hard to be kind to you guys [the media], does not mean that I am trying too hard and that everybody loves me in the dressing room because this simply does not exist.

“Can I be a shouter? Yeah, of course, if it’s absolutely necessary. I can be totally emotional, and I can also totally be a shouter if I feel this is the minute to do it and to surprise. If you do it all the time then no one would listen because it becomes a habit, so everybody gets used to it.

“The goal is also to stay a little bit unpredictable, and most of the time to be reasonable because, for me, it is important we build a trust and relationship that we can rely on.

“Players won’t get punished, shouted at or insulted in front of a group, this is unacceptable – but if we have to point out things clearly I’m a big friend of doing it in front of the whole group.

“If we have behaviours that harm the group and cause trouble for the team on the pitch, we should tell the players individually, but I believe strongly that everybody has to have the personality to swallow criticism in front of the group.

“That way no harm is done because we can talk openly. To be clear and to be honest, this will never change. I don’t do stuff to be loved by everyone in the dressing room, this is not possible.”
