UCL: Tuchel under fire over Real Madrid comments after Chelsea’s defeat

Former Cardiff manager, Neil Warnock, hit out at Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, over his comments following the Blues’ Champions League quarter-final first leg 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

Tuchel watched as Real Madrid beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, thanks to Karim Benzema’s hat-trick.

However, speaking after his side’s defeat, Tuchel said at his post-match press conference that the Champions League last-8 fixture is over for Chelsea ahead of the second leg, insisting that his team will get ‘hammered’ in Spain next week.

But Warnock has now slammed Tuchel’s post-match comments, claiming it was the ‘worst interview’ the German has given since arriving at Chelsea from Paris Saint-Germain.

He noted that Tuchel should not put the ‘white flag up’ before the second leg tie at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“That is probably the worst I have heard from Tuchel in an interview since he has been at Chelsea,” Warnock told talkSPORT.

“I didn’t sense that he believed that he could turn it around. I think the players have got to have the manager talking as if they can believe in him and I don’t think it was a good vibe last night.

“I know it’s 3-1 and it is almost impossible, but if you have seen these games, turn on some silly coin and a goal early doors so you can’t just put the white flag up.

“He didn’t sound good last night.”
