Thomas Tuchel compares Chelsea star to Michael Ballack

Ruben Loftus-Cheek reminds Tuchel of Chelsea legend Michael Ballack.

The 25-year old midfielder played only 10 games for the Blues in the 2019-20 season and spent time on loan at clubs like Fulham and Crystal Palace.

The academy graduate made his first-team debut in 2014 and Tuchel has been a fan of the midfielder for many years.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel remind of him of former German and Chelsea superstar Michael Ballack.

Tuchel said: ‘It is not decided yet.

‘I was quite a fan of him when he was even younger and he came though the academy and started playing professional football.

‘He reminded me a little bit in his style of play and movement of Michael Ballack.

‘There were some links about him moving to Germany – we were well aware of him. I don’t know why things didn’t work out but he’s doing well on loan now and leaving him footprint.

‘I love to work with players but I need a direct impression and we don’t have that yet. I don’t know what his ideas are or what the club are thinking. We haven’t made a decision yet.’
