​Chelsea manager Tuchel: Sarr deserves to play

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is full of praise for defender Malang Sarr.

The youngster filled in at left-back against Tottenham, and Tuchel believes his versatility is a significant advantage to the squad.

The Blues claimed a 1-0 win against Spurs in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi final, having won the first leg 2-0.

Speaking after his team booked a spot in the final, Tuchel said of Sarr: “He can play full-back like he did today, in a line with a wide player in front of him. He can play centre-back or left position in a back three.

“At the moment he deserves to play. He has played well when he was needed. He is very well aware of his role. From there he takes what he can get. He needs to work hard and stay humble. He is doing good, he is solid, he is consistent and that’s what we needed.”
