Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has praised the club’s loan system when discussing youngster Trevoh Chalobah.

The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at FC Lorient and has worked his way into Tuchel’s first-team plans this season.

Speaking to the club’s official Fifth Stand app via Absolute Chelsea, Tuchel praised the defender and the club’s loan system.

Discussing the latest Chelsea Academy graduate, Tuchel said: “For him personally, I think that was the key. For another player, the training may be more relevant. It depends on the individual situation. For Trevoh it was very important to play these matches. “

The German continued to praise the loan system in place at Chelsea, citing it as the reason Chalobah is now ready for club first-team football.

“It was important to play in different countries, different competitions. That’s what you see now, he can adapt.” he admitted.
