Chelsea Defender

Thomas Tuche has rotated his starting XI regularly since taking over in January, and defender Reece James has opened up on the German head coach’s policy

Reece James has opened up on life under Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea.

The Chelsea full-back has featured regularly this season, both under Frank Lampard and Tuchel, making the right-back role his own having come through the club’s academy.

Tuchel has rotated regularly since his arrival towards the end of January, giving almost everyone a chance to impress, but James has featured as much as anyone, making 13 appearances across all competitions under the new head coach.

“When the competition’s always so high, there’s so many good players around you, I think sometimes rotation and competition helps bring the best out of myself and the other players,” James told Chelsea’s official website of the rotation.

“It keeps you on your toes and pushes you every day in training as well, just to make sure that you are playing and you get the best out of yourself and the rest of the players.”

“Yeah, of course,” added James when asked about whether his skipper has helped.

“He’s been at the club for a number of years and is a club legend. Playing in front of him is great and knowing I’ve got him behind me is a very good feeling as well. I always feel safe and secure on the pitch.

“Ever since I came into the senior squad, right from the start, he’s always been supporting and helping and guiding me and he still does that now.”
