Thomas Tuchel first met his new Chelsea players on Tuesday at his Cobham training base after replacing Frank Lampard as the new manger.
Tuchel, the former coach of Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain, replaced Lampard who finished ninth in the Premier League table with his team after a recent streak of bad luck.
The German coach made it clear in his first public statement as head coach that he believes Lampard has laid a solid foundation for the build-up and that the Chelsea hierarchy is keen to keep the youth at the fore in his time as a coach.
However, Tuchel also wanted to reiterate that everyone starts with a clean blackboard.
He told his new players that each of them will have a chance to show him that they have what it takes to be in the starting XI, according to The Mirror.
According to reports Roman Abramovich enjoyed the way Lampard developed young players and he told Tuchel he expected it to stay that way.
There have been fears among Chelsea fans that Reece James, Mason Mount, and Billy Gilmour might be scrapped after a new manager arrives, but that’s unlikely to be the case.
