Chelsea boss, Tuchel says Mateo Kovacic’s absense is a ‘big miss’ to the Champions League finalist after injury kept him out of Wednesday Arsenal Clash
The 27-years-old midfielder has been battling with a hamstring injury and has simce remained on the sideline, giving Thomas Tuchel midfield selction headache in recent games.
Mateo Kovacic Absent has given room for Billy Gilmour to prove himself and the young midfielder has been giving out his best in the role and the blue boss was full of praise for the young Midfielder.
Thomas Tuchel speaking on Kovacic says; “He is not ready for tomorrow, we have to postpone it to Wembley. His personal race is on to make it to the squad for Wembley,” Tuchel told the media on Tuesday.
“Billy Gilmour had to step up now because we miss Kova so much and we play normally always with a double-six, so we were rotating constantly between N’Golo, Jorgi and Kova. Once we miss Kova now for so many games, so many weeks, it was on Billy to step up and I was very happy that he could deliver when it was needed.
“So full credit for that, but Kova is a big loss with his ability to drive with the ball, his speed on the ball, without the ball. Kova is such a positive character and unique player, a mean fighter on who you can always rely in games and training.
“We really miss him, he is a good match with Jorgi and N’Golo in all combinations. So it’s a big miss and I can’t wait until he’s back in full team training. He’s taken some steps in the right direction and I hope he can rejoin team training after our game with Arsenal.”
