Tuchel is worried about losing players like Thiago Silva and Edouard Mandy.


boss Thomas Tuchel has expressed concern about the presence of players in the international duty in March.

The British government now blacklists anyone who travels from a foreign country and must be quarantined for 10 days. This is while the Premier League games start with the end of the international games. On the red list are South American countries, large parts of Africa and Portugal, so that players like Thiago Silva and Edouard Mandy will be on the red list if they play in the national team. Now Tuchel expressed concern about this situation.

"I am absolutely worried because my target is to play in the Premier League and if I have players in quarantine, I cannot build the group that we want,"

Tuchel said.

"This is the risk and I am absolutely worried about this situation. But I am also sure that the club knows how to handle it. If it maybe is the consequence that the players cannot go then this is the consequence.

"This situation is extraordinary. We have to adapt and we will do this as a club and we will make these decisions. We are very concerned about the situation."
