‘I want to play in the big tournaments’: Tuchel on European Super League


Thomas Tuchel’ Chelsea are amongst the Six English Premier League clubs that are a part of the newly founded European Super League. This decision of the club has enraged Blues fans as they question the club’s hierarchy and management.

Not just Chelsea but fans of all the respective football clubs are extremely disgusted with the decision that has been taken by their respective owners. The decision to put money first in place of traditions, heritage, and culture is beyond infuriating.

The elite group is just trying to create a monopoly wherein they will dictate over all the smaller groups. This self-invited lot will ruin the very essence of qualifying for the ultimate stage in European football by actually working hard for it. By actually playing for it rather than just infusing money.

This again is clearly showing that managers and players have very little to say. All such decisions are taken by the owners and board members. They are mere puppets. Nothing more.

In the pre-match conference for Chelsea vs Brighton and Hove Albion, Thomas Tuchel was asked about the European Super League. However, Tuchel in a very diplomatic style avoided the question well.

He says that he hopes his club makes the right decision. Moreover, he adds that in such matters, the manager or the players don’t get much of a say. Additionally, Thomas Tuchel adds that he wants a calm atmosphere and hopes every conflict is resolved.

“I know about it since yesterday. I’m here to be in the toughest competitions, that’s why I’m at Chelsea,” “As you know, I don’t get involved in all these subjects around us. I trust my club to make the right decision. I was clearly not involved and my players were not involved in the decision-making process. “My role is to be a coach, to be focused and we have an important game coming up tomorrow (Tuesday).”

Chelsea and Tuchel may be out of the UEFA Champions League:

Chelsea reached the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2014. They defeated Portuguese club FC Porto 2-1 in aggregate in the quarter-finals. They are going to face Real Madrid CF in the semifinals.

However all this could go to waste should UEFA take the decision to ban Manchester City, Real Madrid CF and Chelsea. There’s a strong rumour going on that these clubs could face the axe for their participation in the European Super League.

Jesper Moller of the Danish FA confirmed the news.“The clubs must go, and I expect that to happen on Friday. Then we have to find out how to finish (this season’s) Champions League tournament,” 

President Aleksandr Ceferin has also spoken about this.

“We’re still assessing our legal team but we will take all the sanctions that we can and we will inform you as soon we can,” he said. “My opinion is that as soon as possible they have to be banned from all our competitions and the players from all our competitions,”
