Tuchel reacts to Lukaku’s revelation about being unhappy with the system in Chelsea

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has said he did not like Romelu Lukaku’s decision to speak out about his unhappiness at Stamford Bridge, claiming the striker’s comments were a “surprise” and “not helpful”.

Tuchel admits he is disappointed with the striker’s comments and says the club will be dealing with the matter internally.

“We don’t like it because it brings noise that we don’t need, but on the other side we don’t want to make noise, it’s very easy to make headlines or shorten lines,” said Tuchel, speaking ahead of Sunday’s crucial match against Liverpool.

Lukaku rejoined Chelsea in a £97.5m move from Inter in the summer but has struggled for consistency this season, scoring seven goals in 18 matches.

An ankle injury has hampered his progress and the Belgium international has played the full 90 minutes just once in Chelsea’s last 12 league games – Wednesday’s frustrating 1-1 draw with Brighton.

Speaking earlier this month, Lukaku admitted he is not happy with his current role under Tuchel.

“Physically I’m doing great. I’m just not very happy with the situation, but that’s normal,” Lukaku said.

Lukaku scored 24 league goals last season to help Inter win the Serie A title and the striker says he is keen to move back to Italian football at some point in the future.

Speaking about his departure from the San Siro, Lukaku added: “I don’t think any of it should have happened the way it did. The way I left Inter and the way I communicated with the Inter fans. I’m annoyed about that because it’s not the right time now but it wasn’t the right time when I left either.

  1. They just need to feed Lukaku and the manager should know how and when the players need to pass the ball to the giant striker so he can be more fruitful and happy
    Problems solved!


  2. Lukaku is right, I think it’s the time to remodelate Chelsea cf, it’s the time think about the feuture of many players. As ucl Champions, Chelsea need to buy greater plyers, and to get out some plyers like, pulisic, kalou, rizynk, and other.

    Now to let lukaka leave, is a big mistake, if Chelsea want real to be in list of best club in football.


    1. You are wrong my friend, don’t think in past, just think about the moment fc. If Chelsea just want to continue, in the greater level, it’s a big mistake to leave Lukaka. Lukaku is the best plyer of Chelsea FC in the moment, Next Ngole.


  3. Yes ,I had said it sometimes back that Chelsea’s loss must be as a result of an inner issues and I was specific between players and coach,but someone was quick to attack me and tell me that I know nothing ,that small teams usually dissappint big teams,now my critics,it’s clear that you don’t know how to read early signs of problems in a team .most losses Chelsea incurred were not usually one’s and might be even more beneath ,so we fans you need to learn from moods and trends of the team
