Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel calls for calm over the future of Pulisic after his dad’s tweet

-

- Advertisment -

Thomas Tuchel has poured cold water on suggestions Christian Pulisic is not happy at Chelsea after the player’s father vented on Twitter about his son’s ‘sad situation’.

In a now-deleted post, Pulisic’s father suggested he could leave with a ‘big six months ahead’, despite his love for ‘his club, team-mates and London‘.

When asked about the situation at his press conference on Friday, Tuchel was quick to dampen speculation and insisted he and the players have no issues.

‘I am not concerned if the player’s father says he does not love me [on Twitter],’ Tuchel laughed. ‘It’s a normal thing [for a player to be frustrated]. We have our reasons to go for players in the first XI. 

‘You will never see happy faces from players who are not selected. With me and Christian, there is zero problem. In some matches he has a huge impact from the bench. I didn’t even know [about his dad’s tweet]. It has nothing to do with it. 

‘The players are responsible for being in the team and staying in the team. Am I always right? For sure, not. Is it always fair? For sure, not. The reaction from Christian has been the opposite, he’s very strong, very positive in the last weeks.’

Pulisic played just 22 minutes against Everton, 19 against Manchester United prior to that, and just 14 against West Ham on the Sunday before – although he did score the late winner in that match.

The American last played a full 90 minutes against Burnley on March 5 – a game that he scored, assisted and was awarded man of the match in – but he has since fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

One problem that Pulisic faces is that Tuchel often opts to play with a three at the back formation without any wingers.

Aside from the Pulisic conundrum, Tuchel revealed some team news ahead of his side’s game against Wolves at the weekend, confirming that both N’Golo Kante and Jorginho will miss the match.

Of the battle for top-four, he noted: ‘We would rather not be in the [race] but we are. 

‘We need another reaction. That’s where we are. We had a week to prepare which was nice, but not nice because we prefer to play Champions League. We want elite behaviour, this includes me… we have to step up.’
