Raheem Sterling trained for the first time with his new teammates at the Allegiant Stadium. The opportunity for Thomas Tuchel to discuss the arrival of the English international, and to respond to the rumor Cristiano Ronaldo at Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel (Chelsea coach):
“What Raheem Sterling brings is pretty obvious, and that’s exactly what we saw on the pitch. I have the feeling that he is absolutely happy to be here, it’s a new chapter for him.
If we thought of Cristiano Ronaldo? He’s a fantastic player, but he’s a fantastic player for another fantastic club that plays in our competition, in the Premier League. So out of respect, we don’t comment on these players, because we don’t like other coaches talking about our players. It has to stay that way. We focused on our main target: Raheem Sterling, who we signed. Everything else must remain behind the scenes. »
Trevoh Chalobah (Chelsea defender):
“I think Raheem’s arrival will bring a lot to the team. We know what a great player he is, he’s won a lot, he’s scored a lot of goals, and having this type of player in our team to help us win matches and trophies is going to be huge. We are all excited. »
