“I was left dumbfounded” – Very disappointed Chelsea star slams Tuchel for misleading him

It seems all was not well between former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.

Pulisic has revealed he was misled by Tuchel before Chelsea’s 2020-21 Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.

“What happened before that game was hugely disappointing for me,” Pulisic writes in his new book ‘Christian Pulisic: My Journey So Far’.

“l’d had a really good first leg performance and our following match was against Fulham in the league. Tuchel told me that he was resting me for the second leg and as a result I didn’t play a single minute in the Fulham game.

“Then on match day of the second semi, Tuchel tells me he’s changed his mind and he’s going with Kai [Havertz]. I honestly was dumbfounded and very disappointed.

“I thought that I’d earned a start and, most importantly, he had assured me previously I was going to start. So by the time he brought me on with about 25 minutes left, I was just so wound up.”
