Thomas Tuchel on Chelsea’s goalkeepers:
“I found a fantastic group, a competitive group, a strong group of goalkeepers, goalkeeper coaches, and Petr Cech, who helped each other through every single training session, thanks to Hilario, our goalkeeping coach.”
“Now that Petr [Cech] is not in training as much, we have Marcus Bettinelli, and we have a good group once again. You can see what it does to these men and how strong they are in Kepa’s recent performances.”
“I’m delighted that we have two international top goalkeepers, and I’m pleased with Marcus Bettinelli’s role. Of course, thanks must go to the club and Petr Cech, who spotted the potential in these players.”
