Chelsea started the season with a 1-0 victory over Everton away at the Goodison Park.
It was a far from convincing performance, but the Blues got the desired victory.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has claimed that Thomas Tuchel doesn’t seem happy with the situation at Chelsea, as he is yet to get all his transfer signings.
“They seem out of sorts, the comments from the manager, he’s not happy, he doesn’t seem happy with the way the recruitment has gone,” Ferdinand told Vibe with FIVE.
“Not been able to get the players in, a lot of players want to get out.
“Chelsea didn’t look like a team that was running fluid [against Everton]. They looked a little bit all over the place. You could see the frustration after, he wasn’t happy with the way that they played.
“It’s the environment at the training ground. There’s a lot of players who want to leave, they’ve been very open about that they don’t want to be there. [Timo] Werner’s going to Leipzig, [Marcos] Alonso’s going to Barcelona.”
Contrary to what Ferdinand has said, Thomas Tuchel has said he’d need more signings, but will push his current squad if he doesn’t get his targets.
When asked about further signings before the end of the window after Chelsea’s win over Everton, Tuchel told Sky Sports: “Yeah, if we can add, we add.
“Maybe not necessarily a midfielder as a first option but we’re open for everything.
“I think we can use new energy, new legs and fresh input to bring us to a new level.
“If not, then we will push this team but I think we could use some more input and some more quality. We’re on it but we will not tell you [who].”
