Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is known for his honesty when talking about his players in public as he once again address Tammy Abraham role and why he was left out of the team.
Thomas Tuchel revealed during his press conference today that Tammy Abraham has not had the impact he demands from him which has led to him not giving him much chance after he return from injury.
The 23-year-old remains Chelsea’s top goalscorer this season with 12 goals in 30 games despite not getting much game time throughout the new manager tenure which was due to injury for the most part.
It has been a really tough one for the England striker who haven’t been named in the starting lineup since making his return from a short spell injury which have seen him miss couple of games.
It was suggested that Thomas Tuchel would start him against West Brom which they lost, but to the surprise of many Tammy Abraham was left out once again and it has drawn lots of attentions.
The striker will be hoping to make return as he is desperate with Euro 2020 tournament coming up and national teams manager will be shortlisting their full team lists.
Thomas Tuchel on the other hand went on saying why he dropped him and that he won’t pick a player based on their ambitions to make the national team as he is the manager and he knows best.

‘I don’t select players based on their personal goals,’ Tuchel said on Friday.
‘Kepa wants to be the first choice goalkeeper for Spain but it can’t influence my decision.
‘I am doing what I believe is best for Chelsea now. Tammy has had some difficulties. He started two or three times and subbed off at Half-time.
‘He’s not impressed like we demand from him. He later got injured, lost the energy and possibility to fight for a spot in the squad.
‘Now we’re in a decisive part of the season, where it’s not so easy to start players coming back from injuries. We can only make three changes during a match.
‘It’s left for Tammy to do everything. We have 22 players and it’s hard to select only 18 for Premier League games.’
