Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed that he understands the criticism towards Chelsea after the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. After Russian troops crossed the border, MP Chris Bryant said that the assets of Roman Abramovic should be seized. Tuchel believes that the current scenario has affected the players and coaching staff before their Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.
“We shouldn’t pretend this is not an issue. The situation for everyone here is horrible. Nobody expected this, it’s pretty unreal. It’s clouding our minds and our excitement towards the final. It brings huge uncertainty, much more to all people at the moment more involved than us. We send our best wishes and regards to them, obviously,” Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said. “Still there are so many uncertainties around the situation of our club, in the UK with scenarios like this, that it makes no sense if I comment on it. We’re aware of it, we haven’t got so much insight or inside information as you might think, and in the very end, I think it’s also the right from the team and staff to be not political, to focus on sports. Not because we are hiding, but the situation is clear, it’s horrible, no doubt about it.”
“I’d love to take my right not to comment on it until there is a decision made. It’s distracting us, it’s worrying us, to a certain degree I can understand it, I can understand the critical opinions towards the club and us who represent it. We cannot fully free ourselves from it,” he added.
