The Chelsea head coach has faced the media ahead of the Newcastle United game and one of the main talking point from his press conference was about getting the best out of Kai Havertz.
“I am pretty sure we will see that, it takes it’s time and there is no short answer, if there was then I would go and talk to him to bring out his full potential,” Tuchel said.
“What we know and what we can rely on is this potential in him, there is logic to show it on the pitch. For every transfer and change of club is different, sometimes you need more time to adapt, sometimes it is quick, sometimes it is a process.
“All we can do is push him, support him and give him what he needs and we will figure this out.
