‘I mean it’: Thomas Tuchel confesses he’s worried about what’s going on at Tottenham under Conte and Arsenal this summer

‘I mean it’: Thomas Tuchel confesses he’s worried about what’s going on at Tottenham under Conte and Arsenal this summer

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has admitted to being concerned about how Tottenham and Arsenal are improving their squads.

Tuchel has seen the Chelsea board sanction the departure of Romelu Lukaku in exchange for the signing of Raheem Sterling, a signing Tuchel admitted was his ‘priority.’

Tottenham, on the other hand, has been very active in the market, bringing in players such as Bissouma, Perisic, and Richarlison, among others. Meanwhile, Arsenal has signed Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City, and Fabio Vieira has also joined the club to bolster its ranks.

And, in an interview with  The Telegraph, Tuchel admitted that Chelsea will be competing against some top teams this season.

“I mean it when I said we fight against the best teams and the best coaches, which does not make life easier and they set the bar so high last season, but we start again from scratch,”

“If you look at the transfer period of Tottenham with Antonio Conte, it’s maybe the strongest team they ever built. Manchester United will not give in, Arsenal will not give in, they’ve made two big signings already, so we are aware of the situation and try to do our best to be competitive,” Tuchel said.

Thomas Tuchel will not be the only one keeping an eye on the Spurs. Liverpool and Manchester City will be looking at Antonio Conte with envy, wondering how good his Tottenham team can be.

Both Arsenal and Tottenham have made some excellent signings. Chelsea, on the other hand, must rebuild, as Tuchel points out.

He can’t, however, complain. Chelsea has backed him up with the signing of Sterling, and more will follow. Following that, it will be a race to the top four spots.
