Chelsea boss Tuchel hails academy staff after impressive goals record against Norwich

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has heaped praise on the academy coaching staff.

Five of the seven goals Chelsea put past Norwich on Saturday were scored by academy graduates.

Tuchel told the club's website: "The Academy is full of quality coaches and quality leaders and the guys who come from the Academy through to our team and onto our pitch are all of the same spirit and same attitude - humble guys who know what it is to play for Chelsea.

"They know what it takes to be serious, to be humble, and that there's no problem in being a nice guy and still playing a hard and serious match of football.

"It's a pleasure to have that mix between the best players of the world from all countries and the Academy players. That makes things special and creates a certain energy and atmosphere for the spectators in the stadium.

"This is what we want and we will always try to push guys through but in the end, let's be honest, it's a matter of quality and not where you come from"
