Tuchel on Lukaku and his agent
The Chelsea manager has once again spoken out about the Romelu Lukaku scandal.
The German said of the rumors that his agent wants a meeting with the Chelsea hierarchy: “I think if he is considering speaking with the owner, it may not be his intention to speak with me. “That’s fair enough. Let’s see if he gets a meeting. It’s his right. We’ll talk to anyone.”
“We will assess any situation of any player, including Romelu. We will see what will happen and what the plans are.
When asked if he had any concerns about the media noise surrounding Lukaku ahead of such a big game, Tuchel replied: “I was only informed about it five or ten minutes ago, actually. That’s what sometimes happens in football.
“Attention is so high that sometimes it attracts situations that you don’t want to have before the big games. That’s how it is.
“For me, that’s not a distraction and I hope for everyone working in the team and the team itself, that’s not the case.”
