Tuchel - I want to play Kepa in matches

New Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has talked about giving Kepa Arrizabalaga a chance to prove his worth at Chelsea.

The Blues signed Kepa from Athletic Bilbao in 2018 and the player despite making a bright start, has lost his way at Chelsea Football Club.

Tuchel said: “From outside we had a view on his situation and some difficulties on the sporting side.

“Maybe the circumstances of his transfer are a little bit on his shoulders. That was the impression from outside.

“From inside, I see an open personality. A hard working guy with a lot of quality. He deserves to be here.

“The good thing for him is that we start new, that this is a new start for him because I don’t have a history with him.

“He does everything to impress in training and this is the only thing he could do.

“It is a special position, it has its own rules. If you make mistakes, everybody sees it, talks about it so you need a lot of mental strength and quality.

“Kepa gets the chance tomorrow and I hope he can show what he shows in training.”
