Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits he is delighted at finally getting to work with N’Golo Kante.
The German tactician took over this week from Frank Lampard and oversaw the 0-0 draw with Wolves on Wednesday night.
Tuchel spoke in highly about the squad he has inherited, and Kante in particular.
“The funny thing is when you join a team in the middle of the season, I already know the likes of Kai [Havertz], Timo [Werner], Toni [Rudiger]. I wanted many years to have N’Golo Kante in my team and now I have him here, also Olivier Giroud, we have a clear picture,” Tuchel said in his post-game press conference.
“I have been following the Premier League for many years both in Dortmund and in Paris so I have a clear picture of what the guys are capable of.
“To find a guy like [Cesar] Azpilicueta in your office is simply amazing because in the end I am also a fan off football.”
