“Still trying to find the best version”- Thomas Tuchel jumps to Saul Niguez’s aid after the Spaniard came under fire for his perfomance against Everton

Thomas Tuchel defends Saul Niguez as the Spaniard faces rough criticism after his series of disappointing performance for the English Club Chelsea.

Saul Niguez the Spanish midfielder has been facing a lot of criticism after he has failed to deliver an impactful performance in Chelsea since his arrival in Summer.

The transition from La Liga to English Premier was not easy for Saul as he continues to struggle and fails to make appearances for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

Thomas Tuchel has recently agreed in his interview that the low level of performance from Saul has kept the Spaniard on the list of dismissal although that should never be the final decision as there is a lot left to the season and the German manager looks to help out Saul in every positive way.

Saul Niguez has been criticised on social media right after the Everton match of Chelsea in Stamford Bridge where the Spanish midfielder played in three different positions in the match and was the vital reason for the Equaliser from Everton as he failed to clear the ba before it reached Jarrad Branthwaite.

“On Thursday, he played as a number six, as a number nine and as a wing-back. Is that fair to him? No, it is not,” Thomas Tuchel in his recent interview before Wolves fixture.

“I understand people are disappointed after Thursday. But reactions like this are exactly the reasons why I do not involve myself in social media.”

“I protect myself because this is when it can get carried away. And I only hope that Saul does not read it because why should he.”
