Thomas Tuchel has Insisted This Youngster Should Remain in the Club

On 26 January 2021, Tuchel signed an 18-month contract (with the option for an extra year) with English Premier League side Chelsea, replacing Frank Lampard .Although expressing a desire to not come in mid-season so as to have a pre-season with his new team Tuchel accepted the position after Ralf Rangnick rejected the proposal of interim head coach.

He is the first German to manage Chelsea and arrives having guided PSG to four major honours and the Champions League final during his time in the French capital.

With Tuchel thinking so highly of Gilmour, and refusing to allow him to leave on loan, several Chelsea fans have been shocked to see the youngster featuring for the Under-23s, with many supporters adamant that he should be in and around the first-team squad on matchdays, especially when he is training with them during the week.


Gilmour has played just 90 minutes under Thomas Tuchel, against Barnsley in the FA Cup, so has dropped down in order to maintain his match fitness ahead of a tricky run of games for the Blues
