Tuchel makes damning assessment of Chelsea’s Champions League hopes

Chelsea bidders the Ricketts family are worried about the role others are playing in the fan protests against them.

Roman Abramovich is selling up in west London with several parties entering the race for the Blues. The Ricketts family has faced plenty of backlash from fans, but are concerned about the source of the protests against them.

Kevin de Bruyne and Mohamed Salah are both example of players that got away at Stamford Bridge. Both were sold before either player could make their mark on the club or the Premier League. They have since returned with Man City and Liverpool respectively and shown how good they are, with De Bruyne opening up on why the move away from Stamford Bridge helped both players.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has revealed what helped him following the defeat to Real Madrid.

De Bruyne was sold to Wolfsburg but made his triumphant return to English football in 2015, helping Man City win multiple league titles.

The Belgian has since admitted that both players needed new surroundings to improve as players.

Tuchel’s sweet tooth

Thomas Tuchel has said that eating chocolate helped him re-watch the defeat to Real Madrid.

The Blues were comprehensively defeated by their Spanish counterparts in the Champions League quarter-finals and are 3-1 down going into the second leg next week. Watching the game back made the German coach angry and the only way to get through the tapes was to consume something sweet.

“The amount of chocolate I needed to go through the match again was immense,” Tuchel told media on Friday.
