While all the leagues take a break over Christmas, the Premier League continues at a hellish pace with the traditional Boxing Day.
On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea were on Aston Villa’s lawn and the Blues provided the essentials with a 3-1 victory thanks to Jorginho and Romelu Lukaku. On the other hand, Thomas Tuchel lost Thiago Silva and Ngolo Kanté to injury. Two hard knocks for the German coach, who quickly made the Brazilian and the French world champion two tauliers in Chelsea. After the Blues’ victory, Thomas Tuchel blasted the hellish schedule of the Premier League. On the Sky Sport antenna, the former Paris Saint-Germain coach gave a memorable rant. In addition in this period of Covid, he requires a period of rest for the players of the Premier League.
Tuchel exasperated by the English calendar
“We let Callum Hudson-Odoi (who is back from Covid) play 90 minutes because we needed to replace other players. Who decides that? Maybe we are making a big mistake by playing our players who come back from Covid. They make us play and we play. There are not enough changes for us. The five changes were invented because of the Covid. All of Europe has five changes. The whole of Europe has a winter break but we continue to play and put that on the shoulders of the players. They make us play all the time even when we have the Covid. We have more injuries and it’s not going to stop. It can’t. People in offices make these decisions. It’s like that. We make changes because of the injuries. We no longer make changes for tactical reasons ” rebelled Thomas Tuchel, who calls for changes as quickly as possible in England.
