The Chelsea head honcho has become the first manager to talk about the new league
The last day has seen the world of football been thrown in turmoil. Ever since 12 clubs from the global circuit revealed plans to embark on a new, super exclusive Super League, massive controversy has mired the sport.
Supporters and organisations like UEFA, FA and FIFA have slammed the Super League, citing it to be a massive determent to the sport. Supporters in particular have been irked by their clubs decision to partake in the league and throw the sport in an upheaval.
The Premier League sees the most numbers of clubs sign onto the competition with as many as six clubs on board. Chelsea are amongst the English sides to have sworn their allegiance to the competition.
In the aftermath of the announcement, Chelsea’s coach, Thomas Tuchel has become the first coach of a side in the Super League to talk about the massive development. And the German delivered any extremely professional statement as he staved off the criticism directed at the league.
Tuchel Sends Professional Message
“I have known about it since yesterday. But, I am here to be in the hardest competition, that is why I came here, this is what I love – to play in the hardest competitions in Europe. That’s what I am at Chelsea.
“As you know, I do not get too involved with the subjects around us, I am a bit sad that the subjects are there now as I was hoping to talk about the Man City game or, more importantly, the Brighton game.
“This is clearly not the case today but as you know, I am part of this club, I trust my club to make the right decisions. I think it is too early to judge everything and it is not my part.
“On my badge at Chelsea, it says I have to play my role, everyone has to play their role and mine is to be a coach and to be focused. We have an important game coming up.”
