Saul Niguez’s season at Chelsea
Saul Niguez would join Chelsea on a one-season loan from Atlético de Madrid on the day of the transfer deadline this summer.
The Spaniard appeared to be a true coupe for the Blues, who arguably had a short man in central midfield, especially with N’Golo Kante’s lingering injury problems.
And, the experienced Saul looked like a great 4th Thomas Tuchel’s man and company. However, Saúl’s season at Chelsea did not get off to a great start as the midfielder was substituted after 45 minutes against Aston Villa.
Since then, Saúl has been on the bench during Chelsea’s two Champions League clashes and their next three league games.
And, perhaps more worryingly, Tuchel has given players like Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek chances ahead of Saul, even though the pair’s Chelsea future looks very bleak at the start of this season.
Alonso on Saul
However, despite his difficulties at Chelsea so far, Saúl has been backed by his national team and teammate, Marcos Alonso.
When asked about Saúl’s start at Chelsea recently, Alonso predicted that the loan from Atlético de Madrid will be very good for Chelsea:
“Well, he’s a newcomer.
“He’s in the adaptation phase, but he’s a great player and he’s going to be very good for us.”
Alonso also spoke highly of Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel:
“With us he was able to change teams very quickly and now he wants to continue improving us,” said the left-back. We are very happy with the coach from day one and to have him around this season.
“I have had many great coaches. At the end of the day, everyone has their stuff. It is clear that he is a great coach, in football and personally.
“He reads the games very well, we prepare very well with him. It is an advantage to have such a coach ”.
