Report: What Tino Anjorin actually thinks about Thomas Tuchel after being sent out on loan

Chelsea youngster Tino Anjorin reportedly has a positive relationship with Thomas Tuchel despite being loaned out by him in the summer.

According to Football London, the 20-year-old has a “good relationship” with Chelsea first-team manager Tuchel and he enjoyed working alongside him in training.

The attacking midfielder departed Stamford Bridge in the summer on a season-long loan to Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow, albeit he’s currently back at Chelsea recovering from a broken metatarsal.

Football London reports the English star plans to return to Lokomotiv Moscow to finish the rest of the season when fit again, but talks are scheduled imminently about his future.

It is understood that Lokomotiv Moscow have the option in January to sign Anjorin on a permanent basis for £17million. However, Ralf Rangnick’s movement in the past fortnight could impact the deal.

The report explains Rangnick, who’s left his role as Lokomotiv’s manager of sports and development to join Man United, had a big role in the signing Anjorin on loan in the summer.

Anorin’s future appears to be up in the air right now. He’s someone that Blues boss Tuchel has raved about in the past, though.

Another breakout Chelsea star?

Anjorin is another gem who was nurtured in the glittering Chelsea academy at Cobham.

Unfortunately, his injury this season came at a time he was starting to find momentum on loan. It’s going to be interesting to see if Lokomotiv take a £17million gamble on him.

The creative midfielder has great skill and power at such a young age, so it won’t be a surprise if he’s another success story from the academy.
