EPL: I have not spoken to Abramovich since Chelsea employed me – Tuchel

Tuchel

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has revealed he has not had any conversation with billionaire owner, Roman Abramovich, since he was appointed.

Tuchel took over in January after Frank Lampard was sacked by the Russian.

“I haven’t spoken to the owner [Roman Abramovich] since I arrived. I’ve spoken to the club before and after the match. I was told we were pulling out, and that was all I needed to prepare for the next match against West Ham.

“It’s the owner’s club. It’s not my club. I am part of the club. It’s the club’s decision, and now they’ve changed. So there’s no need to apologise to me.

“We were distracted, yeah (against Brighton during the week) because otherwise, it wouldn’t have made sense to focus on games. Me, personally, I arrived in a state of mind on Tuesday with not the usual mindset I arrive for a match.

“It’s in the past now. Like I said, I don’t think they need to apologise to me,” Tuchel said on Friday.
