Head coach of Chelsea Thomas Tuchel has responded to the interview of Romelu Lukaku where the latter claimed he’s unhappy with the situation in Chelsea.
According to Thomas Tuchel, he’s surprised by Romelu Lukaku’s comments about being unhappy at the club as he vowed to talk to the Belgian striker behind closed doors.
Recall that Lukaku in an interview with Sky Italia admitted that he is unhappy in West London.
“Physically I’m fine,even better than before.After two years in Italy,in which I worked a lot at Inter with coaches and nutritionists.
“I’m not happy with the situation and that’s only natural.The head coach has decided to play a different system but I need to keep working hard and be professional.
I’m not happy with the situation but I’m a grafter and must not let up” Lukaku disclosed.
However,Tuchel has stated that Lukaku’s remarks have come to him as a shock as he claims to have seen no signs of any dejection or anger from the forward in training.
peaking ahead of Chelsea’s top-of-the-table clash with Liverpool on Sunday, the German head coach told reporters: “We will talk with Lukaku openly behind closed doors. I am surprised because I don’t see him unhappy – the opposite.
“We here can take the time to try to understand what is going on with Romelu, it does not reflect the daily attitude.”
Tuchel says the publication of the interview is an unwanted distraction for his side, but he is reluctant to criticise Lukaku at this stage in case his words have been misinterpreted.
“We don’t like it of course. It brings noise that we don’t need and it’s not helpful,” he added.
“We don’t want to make more out of it than it actually is. It is easy to take lines out of context, shorten lines, make headlines and then realise later that it is not so bad and maybe not what he meant.”
