"They’ve come in and done a really good job, in the way that they've spoken with the players and staff, just wanting to use that same Chelsea mentality, that winning mentality. But also bringing their American ways, their business ways and how they incorporate that into this team. On a day-to-day and the way we train and play, it doesn’t change a whole lot. I think they’ve done a great job so far and I think the guys are really enjoying it so far."
🗣Christian Pulisic on Raheem Sterling's arrival:
"Great quality. We’re really excited about it. The beautiful thing about being at a club like this is the competition every single day. It doesn’t change [my role] a whole lot, I’m still going to have to play hard and earn my position, just like I did before, nothing crazy has changed."
"This is Chelsea, this is what you signed up for, this is the kind of club it is with the calibre of players that we have. We all thrive competing with each other in training and getting to play with each other is just another great addition to the team. I have grown a lot, that’s not how I want him to view me, I want him to view me as the player I am now. I’m just going to continue improving which I feel I have, and showing him why I deserve to be on the field as much as I can."
"Could be [on Thomas Tuchel still seeing him as a youngster]. I guess you’d have to ask him. That’s not who I am anymore. He knows I’ve grown a lot as a player, there’s no doubt."
"Could be [on Thomas Tuchel still seeing him as a youngster]. I guess you’d have to ask him. That’s not who I am anymore. He knows I’ve grown a lot as a player, there’s no doubt. I started as a young 17-year-old kid who just needed to earn his spot in professional soccer, in the sport, being American over in Germany it was very tough for me at the start."
"Now being at Chelsea and him coming back, he’s grown as a coach and I’ve definitely grown as a player. Now it’s about trying to find that relationship. I’ve had some moments, some tougher moments, and I’m continuing to have to prove myself and that’s exactly what I’m going to do."
“Very happy about his signing and joining our team. It’s our second signing of the summer and we have a strong player, strong personality, big experience and in our point of view, the perfect addition to our group.” #CFC
"The owners inherited a squad in dire need of high-level defensive reinforcement. In timely fashion and without breaking the bank, they've acquired the most accomplished and experienced elite CB on the market. It’s very hard to argue they could've done better."
"While Arsenal were trying to sign Raphinha before Chelsea's bid arrived, Thiago Silva was trying to convince his close friend to join the Blues instead."
Kalidou Koulibaly thought to be considered the ideal recruit to help Chelsea achieve one of Thomas Tuchel's top aims of Chelsea becoming the team no one wants to play against. Leadership and physicality, to add to high quality in all facets
