Tuchel reveals how Cesare Casadei can earn first-team spot for Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel has explained what Cesare Casadei can bring to Chelsea and how he can earn a first-team spot.

Chelsea signed Casadei from Inter Milan for an initial £12.6m last week and he is seen as a long-term heir to both N’Golo Kante and Jorginho, with the pair having entered the final year of their respective contracts.

The 19-year-old has played plenty of football for Inter’s youth sides but did not manage to make his senior debut for the club before his exit.

As a result, even with Chelsea’s current midfield issues, it seems unlikely the Italian will have a regular role for the Blues anytime soon.

Now though, Thomas Tuchel has been discussing his new signing, outlining what he can bring to the club and what he must do to earn a first-team place.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Tuchel suggested that Casadei needs to learn English, learn what Chelsea football club is about and understand the culture and principles of playing for the Blues:

“First of all, we need to give him time and not get overexcited because that would not do him a favour,” said the German.

“Then we will try and bring him to first-team training and open the doors for him. In the end, he needs to step through himself.”
