Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel slams unhelpful 'noise'

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel expressed his concern that Romelu Lukaku’s contentious interview may destabilize his team’s season, and expressed astonishment at the striker’s declaration that he is unhappy at the club.

Lukaku said he was “not pleased” because “the coach has decided to play with another system” in an interview with Sky Sport Italia that was filmed three weeks ago but just published on Thursday.

Last summer, the 28-year-old joined Chelsea for €115 million (£97.5 million) from Internazionale, and he said that he wanted to return to the Serie A club “not at the end of my career, but at a still strong level to maybe win more.”

Despite the fact that Lukaku has scored three goals in his past four games, the Belgium international’s words put Tuchel in a tough position, since his team’s spotty record has left them eight points behind Manchester City ahead of Sunday’s match against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

“Of course, we don’t like that because it adds noise that we don’t need and it is not good,” Tuchel said of Lukaku’s remarks during a press conference on Friday prior of that game.

“On the other hand, we don’t want to make it much bigger than it is.” You’re perfectly aware of the situation. It is quite simple to remove lines from their context. It’s all too simple to cut lines, create headlines, and then realize afterwards that it’s not that horrible and not what he intended.

“To be honest, I don’t like it since it creates unnecessary noise.” This does not help us concentrate or maintain a tranquil atmosphere. If it’s an interview with someone of that caliber, that significant player. I completely comprehend the procedure.

“That’s why there’s a lot of additional noise, not just a little amount.” But we’re not here to simply read the headlines; maybe we can take the time to attempt to comprehend what’s going on since it doesn’t represent Romelu’s everyday work, attitude, or behavior here at Cobham.

“You must ask him, not me; I am unable to assist you further since I was astonished.”

Tuchel said that he intends to meet with Lukaku in order to have a thorough understanding of the situation, but went on to explain why some player tension may be beneficial.

“The dressing room does not have to be in perfect harmony all of the time,” he said. “Being successful does not necessitate it.” We don’t have to embrace and adore one other on a daily basis.

“It’s sometimes nice to be on the edge, sometimes good to be a little like in this harmony when it’s in the middle of everything.”

“I don’t believe anybody in this building is aware of Romelu’s dissatisfaction, which is why these remarks catch us off guard. First and foremost, we must investigate because I see no reason why this should be the case. That’s all I have to say about that; we’ll wait to hear from Romelu and then deal with it.”

Following a knee surgery to correct anterior cruciate ligament injury, Tuchel stated “it seems like the season is gone” for Ben Chilwell, while Reece James will undergo a scan later on Friday to establish the extent of his muscle condition.

A number of Chelsea players, including Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen, Timo Werner, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, are facing late fitness tests. Tuchel used an odd comparison to express how his team has been pushed by sickness, and COVID-19 has won 10 games in a row across all competitions.

“It’s like squeezing the same lemon over and over again, expecting new juice,” he said.

“It’s difficult because we’re so ambitious, and it’s difficult for the squad to accept these outcomes and remain optimistic. We all know we can play better, and we’re all aware of that.”
