Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has advised Malang Sarr to “work hard and stay humble”, following their 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup semi-final.
Antonio Rudiger’s header in the first half sealed the Blues’ place in the final of the competition after they won the first leg 2-0.
Tuchel rested Marcos Alonso for the reverse fixture and started 22-year-old Sarr.
Sarr has made eight appearances this campaign, but only one of them has come in the league.
Despite Tuchel being pleased with his performance, it seems he still has a while to wait before moving up the pecking order.
“He can play centre-back and in the left position of a back three. That’s where he is at the moment, he deserves to play.
“He has played well when he was needed. I think he is very aware of his role, this is where he started and from there he takes what he can get. He needs to work hard, stay humble.
“Nothing more. There is no need for further promotion, he is doing good, he is solid and he is consistent and that is what we need,” Tuchel said.
