Premier League: Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel believes that the Premier League failed to protect the safety of the players as they decided to continue with the current schedule. Chelsea was left disappointed after their request to postpone their game against Wolves was turned down. They had a number of first-team players out due to injury or coronavirus. Chelsea have lost a lot of ground with a loss of form recently.

“We thought we had a strong case regarding the security and health of the players. We have seven positive cases, every day more positive cases coming in,” Thomas Tuchel said after the Premier League rejected their request to postpone their game against Wolves. “We were made to travel in the bus three hours together, in meetings together, dinners, lunch, and the situation does not feel like it is going to stop if we keep on doing this. We applied for not playing to give us some time to get the situation under control and it was rejected.”

“We are just worried about the safety of our players. We are concerned about their health,” he added. “I understand everyone saying we still have 14 players but look who the players are. You have Trevor Chalobah playing after two training sessions, Mateo Kovacic after one training session, N’Golo Kante after one training session. We are putting the players at risk but this was the decision. At some point, we will pay the price, for sure.”
