Thomas Tuchel on Andreas Christensen’s commitment.
Elsewhere, Thomas Tuchel has been quizzed on the commitment of Andreas Christensen.
The Dane had a superb first half of the campaign, but has been frozen out somewhat as his contract runs down and rumours swirl that he has already agreed to join FC Barcelona on a free this summer.
Tuchel, though, is apparently not concerned about the centre-back’s commitment: “No concerns. Maybe it is a big more challenging for him that normal in a moment where everything is clear. But maybe he cleared his future. I don’t know it yet, but for me it is very clear when I had conversations with him last summer and through winter.
“The bottom line was that as long as he is my player, I will not expect anything less than 100% commitment. This is what I demand for him. That he was out Saturday was nothing personal, just a tactical choice. He is our player and we want to have the most of him. He needs to be focus. This is his job and it’s what we expect.”
