Chelsea boss sees a bright future for Tomori in Chelsea.
says thatFikayo Tomori
has a long term plan with the club and he is going to spend a loan spell at another club but it won’t be permanent.
“Fikayo Tomori absolutely has a long-term future at this club, and we’ll see if and when he goes on loan,”
“The moment I got close to Fikayo was when I took him to Derby with me and he was player of the year there and one of the best players in the Championship that year in my opinion.
“And then he came back and played 20-plus games for us at a very young age last year and got in the England squad.
There’s an absolute long-term plan for Fikayo in my head about his career here.
“And if it’s to go and play games it’s to absolutely enhance his personal development.
“Hopefully help whatever team he goes to, because that will come hand in hand, and then come back to us a better player.”
And about the general form of his squad he added:
“We’ve had good work on the training pitch, that’s been a positive of the two weeks,
“It’s been the first two weeks where we’ve been able to work through a week at a really physical level, which is important if you want to improve as a team.
“The players have been focused since the Manchester City game. We were expected to beat Morecambe and we did, and after that the main concern has been training and the atmosphere around it.
“When you’ve had a few games where you don’t win it’s clear the players need to stay positive.
“So I’ve seen good reactions from the players in those terms, the players have worked hard.
“It’s the first chance this season we’ve had to work on the bigger elements of our game.
“So that’s been one positive out of the last two weeks, and now our players need to show that.”
