Tuchel was consulted to recruit Ronaldo

According to former player Paul Merson, the style of play that Thomas Tuchel is applying to Chelsea is very suitable for Cristiano Ronaldo to shine.

“Ronaldo has everything chelsea lack,” Paul Merson told Sky Sports. “Playing for Chelsea is not the same as playing for Man Utd.

Man Utd are tending to develop the ball from the middle of the pitch, while Chelsea play close to the penalty area and prefer to impose the game.”

Under thomas tuchel since 2021, Chelsea have won a Champions League, a European Super Cup and a FIFA Club World Cup.

They also reached the FA Cup final twice and once reached the League Cup final.

In the English Premier League, Tuchel’s delegation finished fourth in the 2020-2021 season and third in the 2021-2022 season.

In particular, they are the third highest scoring team in the 2021-2022 season with 76 goals, only behind Man City with 99 goals and Liverpool with 94 goals.

“Chelsea have great full-backs. If they put the ball in the box for Ronaldo, I would be puzzled how many goals he can score,” added the former midfielder, who won two English championships and a C2 Cup with Arsenal.
