Thomas Tuchel: The rise of Trevoh Chalobah

After successful loans spells in the Championship with Ipswich Town and then Huddersfield, the defender then made the brave switch to play in Ligue 1 with Lorient, to hone and develop his game.

‘It’s a nice development being on loan at different clubs and playing a lot of games,’ added Tuchel. ‘You can see that it helped him to deal with the situation here. It’s impressive and I’m very happy for him.

‘For him personally, I think this was the key. For another player it can be that training is more relevant. It depends on the individual situation. For Trevoh it was very important to play these matches.

‘It was important to play in different countries, different competitions. This is what you see now, he can adapt.’
