Edouard Mendy, thanked the boss, Thomas Tuchel, for his trust in the Blues players since his appointment last January.
Tuchel, who at the end of last month replaced Frank Lampard as head coach of Chelsea, led the Stamford Bridge club to win six of their last eight matches.
Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Chelsea Premier League clash with Manchester United, Mendy told the Daily Express: “The coach gives both players confidence.”
We know what he wants, but we have to demonstrate why he chose us when we are on the field.
“It’s very positive for all the players because he gives us a lot of confidence and we need to improve and to play great football when we are on the pitch.
“He is very expressive. He shows when he likes something. When you did well on the pitch and every day at training and in the game, he pushes you.
“He stays positive, but he also shows his determination and that is good for the team and me.”
