Chelsea boss Tuchel delighted with players' approach to rotations

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is delighted with the attitude of his players to his rotations.

The fact that all decisions are subsequently explained gives players the opportunity to understand and move on without resentment or misunderstanding.

"I never experienced a situation where people took it too personally," said Tuchel. "I want to be reliable so that when I'm convinced about something helping the team, then I do it.

"I have the freedom and trust from the team that it's not against somebody or pointing my finger, it's just to help in the moment. It might feel rude to some players but in general I have the feeling that we can do it, we explain the thoughts behind it and the players can swallow it.

"Maybe it's also important how we treat the guys after. It's not like if you are exchanged at half-time and you had a bad match then we don't speak for three weeks. It's not like this and I want to take care about that."
