Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri claims Thomas Tuchel is doing a ‘sensational job’ at Stamford Bridge.
The German manager replaced Frank Lampard at the end of January and has now gone 14 matches unbeaten in all competitions, with his team conceding only two goals.
Chelsea currently occupy the fourth position in the Premier League table and have secured their place in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League and semi-finals of the FA Cup.
Competition for places has been very high under Tuchel and Emerson has only played three first-team games, with one of those a goalscoring cameo to wrap up his side’s 3-0 aggregate victory over Atletico Madrid.
Despite his own limited role, the Italian defender has been impressed with the work Tuchel has done at the club so far.
‘Thomas arrived here and on the first day we noticed the organisation that his team has,’ Emerson told SporTV. ‘He shows a lot of videos, details and information that help us a lot on the pitch.
‘The team is well organised, and he’s doing a sensational job. We need to take advantage of this, get the best out of him.
‘We entered the final stage of the season, we have the Premier League, the FA Cup, the Champions League, and we just need to work out some details and keep doing what we are doing.’
On the level of competition in the team, Emerson Palmieri added: ‘This is good for me, because you’re playing with the best players in the world.
‘Every day you have to do your best, and every day you have to dedicate yourself to the maximum, because you know that there’s a guy there who’s in your shadow, at a very high level.
‘I’m with players from major national teams, I respect their work, and I’m also respected. And I believe that our group is very good, has a very nice union, and we are living a moment of great joy after qualifying in the Champions League and a good sequence in the Premier League.’
