He is a huge player – Tuchel speaks on Chelsea’s latest signing
The Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said Raheem Sterling will be a huge asset for the club.

“Hopefully he shapes our team by just being who he is.
“For me, he is a huge player, with a huge influence in the last years in English football and he’s in a perfect age to now take responsibility around young players that we have and be an example.”
