Tammy Abraham is not happy at Chelsea – Tuchel

Tammy Abraham

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has admitted Tammy Abraham is “not happy” at the club.

Tuchel however refused to comment on speculation that a transfer to Roma is imminent.

Abraham saw his playing time reduce after the German’s arrival last term, and his minutes are set to be reduced even further by Romelu Lukaku’s impending arrival from Inter.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Tuchel said regarding reports of the 23-year-old’s move to Roma: “I will not comment on the actual situation, how far it is, and if it’s true or not true.

“Tammy is in the squad [for Wednesday’s UEFA Super Cup against Villarreal] and did good preparation matches.

“He was clearly not happy with the last half a year and he has maybe reason not to be happy. Maybe it was my fault not to push him and trust him at the same level as other players.

“I can understand he wants more minutes, so the decision will be how do we plan? What are Tammy’s plans? Does he fight his way back into the team from the position he ended last season? Or does he want to change the club to one where he has a better chance of being a starter?

“I can understand and this is the situation. It’s quite a normal situation until the transfer window is closed. Tammy is one of the players where we constantly evaluate the situation and adapt to the needs. There is no news now, he is available for the starting XI tomorrow or to come off the bench.”
