“Chelsea can be proud to have a coach like this,” Antonio Rudiger told the Daily Mail about Thomas Tuchel.
“You have to give him kudos for the way he handled things in those tough moments. With all this noise around, the way he managed us. For me he is a phenomenal coach, up there with Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.
“From a player’s point of view, you need to hold onto a coach like this, 100 per cent.
“I hope for this club that the mentality changes from sacking coaches so early when success is not there. I like to trust the process and, with this coach, you can see there is a process.”
Moreover, the center-back believes that Tuchel has a chance to build a dynasty at Stamford Bridge if given time: “Yes, definitely. What he is doing is definitely top, up there with the top ones.”
No one knows if the coaches will be given more time under the new owners than they were under Roman Abramovich.
Tuchel’s position is definitely safe for the time being, with Todd Boehly reportedly planning to back him with some marquee signings.
