Tuchel refuses to talk about Lukaku’s future at Chelsea

Chelsea boss insists that it is not the right time to talk about Lukaku’s future at Chelsea.



Thomas Tuchel

has talked about the Blues’ Belgian superstar ahead of their decisive clash against


, insisting that it is not the right time to talk about


future at the club, despite his decision of leaving him out of his starting lineup.

The German told Sky Sports:

"He's our player. There is always a way back, but we will clear this in Cobham [Chelsea's training facility] behind closed doors and once we have made a decision; club, coach and once Romelu knows, then you will know as well and not before.

"This is not to be discussed now, let's wait some days."

And after the match about the game itself, which ended in a 2-2 draw, the German head coach added that Liverpool’s star Mane should have been sent off.

"If you remember the first game with the same referee and how quick it was to give a red card to us, I am not a friend of early red cards. I hate to say it because I love Mane and he is a nice guy and top player, but it is a red card.

"The elbow is in the face; it doesn't matter if you do this after 20 seconds or 20 minutes. We come from a game against Brighton where we miss VAR calls in the box and suddenly VAR is checking a goal against Kovacic."
