Chelsea confirm arrival of three new coaches to boost Tuchel’s backroom staff

Chelsea have confirmed the arrival of three new coaches as Thomas Tuchel shapes his backroom staff.

It comes after the Blues came through their first match under their new manager, who was only appointed on Tuesday.

It has been a whirlwind few days at Stamford Bridge after Frank Lampard was sacked on Monday.

Along with the club legend, assistant manager Jody Morris and first-team coach Chris Jones were also let go.

Joe Edwards and Anthony Barry have been retained while Tuchel has now added his own trusted coaches to the backroom staff.

Zsolt Low will replace Morris as assistant manager while Arno Michels has filled in as first-team coach.

Benjamin Weber is the third, signing as a data analyst, with all three members of staff following Tuchel from as far back as his time in charge of Mainz.

Tuchel has already sat in the dugout to see his new side in action in a 0-0 draw with Wolves on Wednesday night.

After joining late on Tuesday, the former Paris St-Germain manager was only afforded a short evening session in training to meet his new players.

It meant he did not have the full picture when it came to picking his team to take on Nuno Espirito Santo's men.

And the 47-year-old has admitted he was relying on the more experienced stars more but will judge future teams on merit.

He said: "We have a good mix of young and experienced players.

"Today I cannot choose a team after one day in training, it's not fair so this may be the most unfair line-up we ever do.

"We chose a bit more experience today because we step in in the middle of the season, it's not easy."

Tuchel is dedicated to playing attacking football that puts an emphasis on winning the ball high up the pitch.

When pressed on what he wants to bring to Stamford Bridge, he said: "I hope we will attack and play brave football, we play to score and create chances.

"It's an intense game, we need a winning mentality and to be compact and solid. that's what we want to create."
