Thomas Tuchel breaks silence on Naby Keita’s horrendous challenge on Trevoh Chalobah

Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah was at the end of a very horrendous tackle by Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita in the Carabao Cup final on Saturday.

Keita did leave his studs on Chalobah and many Chelsea fans have reacted angrily to the tackle as the Liverpool midfielder escaped a red card or even a booking.

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has also expressed his displeasure as according to him, he could not believe the effects the tackle had on Chalobah.

“I could not believe what I was seeing after the match. There was surgery going on in our dressing room, I’m not joking. There was surgery, they were stitching him up.” Tuhel said to the Chelsea website.

“I could not believe it, after the match, after the press conference, when I left they were doing the stitches and I just heard him scream in pain while they were doing it and it looked horrible.”

“You could not look away, it was surgery, they did the stitches and it was right there. He was the only one with the doctors and I heard the noise.”

“Seriously, it was a proper cut, very close in the area of the groin, that was open and needed to be closed.”

Trevoh Chalobah is now very unlikely to face Luton Town in the FA Cup later today due to the injury but the defender could however return for this weekend’s premier league game against Burnley.
