Currently, any player who has the privilege to play for the Chelsea football club will consider himself very fortunate because Chelsea is the type of Club that will bring out the best from any footballer.
Chelsea completed their third signing of the summer by signing Athletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niquez two minutes before the close of the transfer window. The 26-year-old is a lucky player because he won La Liga with Athletico last season and he also stands a chance of adding to his trophy cabinet with Chelsea this season.However, the Spain international has stated the reason why he chose to join Chelsea this summer. He stated that he was constantly played out of position at Athletico Madrid, that he likes playing a more free role other than the defensive midfield he is deployed to play with the Spanish Giants.
However, he believes that at Chelsea, he will be allowed to play as a box-to-box midfielder given the fact that Jorginho and Kovacic lack goal-scoring abilities.As quoted on All football App, the new Chelsea signing said
‘i saw myself stuck in a position that was not mine. Chelsea’s option was to get out of the comfort zone, a challenge.’
Of course, Thomas Tuchel is a world-class tactician that can get the best out of his players, the likes of Havertz, Rudiger and Jorginho were big flops under Frank Lampard but they are now game deciders under Tuchel. With Thomas Tuchel and his fellow Spaniards at Chelsea, Saul Niguez can become one of the best players at Chelsea.
