Tuchel makes Armando Broja admission ahead of Everton clash; What he said

Amando Borja has been linked with a move to Everton since the start of the transfer window and this is no longer any news but still he has not been able to make the move and leave Chelsea completely.

The 20-year-old Ace was given his Chelsea debut by Frank Lampard when he was Stamford Bridge boss, while he scored nine goals on loan at Southampton last season.

This will leave Sterling playing the false number 9 role and Tuchel has something to say about this given the fact that Lukaku has left Chelsea on a loan deal to Inter Milan and also Boja may not be able to take on the role.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Tuchel was asked if Sterling is capable of operating as a false number nine.

And along with Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, the Chelsea chief name checked Broja.

What’s Tuchel said;

Via Football London, Tuchel said: “He (Sterling) gave us the feeling he would be absolutely happy to make this step and step up into a new chapter, a new club, and take even more responsibility in this stage of his career so once we had this feeling and feedback, we tried and succeeded which was for us very important.

“He is one of our offensive players. If we play in the same structure it will be very fluid.

“It can be Kai (Havertz), it can be him, it can be Timo Werner, also Armando Broja who is now in the squad. And that gives us different profiles, different type of playing.

“Liverpool and City showed it is possible to be very successful with a fluid type of offensive player in the nine position. We go from there.”

It was confirmed on Friday night that Broja has been handed the number 18 shirt by Chelsea for the season.
