The French midfielder did not know how to finish the meeting and his coach, Thomas Tuchel, did not mince his words.
Hard blow for Chelsea. Established against Aston Villa (1-3), this Sunday in the Premier League, N’Golo Kanté (30 years old, 15 games and 2 goals in all competitions this season) relapsed from his knee injury. Bad news for Thomas Tuchel, who initially wanted to let his midfielder rest. At the end of the game, the German manager also gave a huge rant to complain about the frantic pace imposed on players in England.
“We let Callum Hudson-Odoi play 90 minutes because we needed to replace other players. Who decides that? Maybe we are making a big mistake by playing our players who come back from Covid. let’s play and we play. There aren’t enough changes for us. The five changes were invented because of the Covid. All of Europe has five changes. All of Europe has a winter break but we continue to play and let’s rest that on the shoulders of the players, “railed the London technician.
“They make us play all the time even when we have the Covid. We have new injuries and it’s not going to stop. It can’t. People in offices are making these decisions. That’s how it is. isn’t fair today. Lukaku performed very well. But he’s not ready for this, even if he wants to. We’ve all been in bed for 10 days with the flu. Me, I was not playing a game at Villa Park two days later. We don’t know what happens after that. Nobody knows, “added Tuchel.
