Cesc Fabregas hails Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel despite Champions League exit
After watching the Champions League knockout matches on Tuesday night, Cesc Fabregas, a former Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder, has made an open statement regarding a club that has been fortunate with a manager.
The Blues were knocked out of the Champions League after battling against all odds to defeat Real Madrid by three goals to two in the return game at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.
In the first half, the visitors took a 1-0 lead when Mason Mount scored just before the half-time siren. When Antonio Rudiger headed home a ball from Thibaut Courtois minutes after the second half ended, the score was 3-3 on the aggregate. After scoring the third goal in the last quarter, Timo Werner effectively put an end to the contest as a whole.
As a result of Rodrigo’s goal in the 80th minute, Real Madrid fought back to eliminate Chelsea from the Champions League. Because the aggregate score was 4-4, extra time was required to break the tie, and the result was 4-4 on aggregate.
Chelsea was eliminated from this event when Karim Benzema’s deadly head in the first half of extra time made it 3-2, culminating in an aggregate score of 5-4 in Real Madrid’s favor.
As a result of his viewing of these, the former Barcelona midfielder resorted to his social media account to shower praise on Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, adding that the German coach is a godsend for the Blues in general.
He stated the following in his account: “Whatever happens, I’m not going to complain.
Chelsea FC has been fortunate with the presence of Thomas Tuchel. What a manager should do”
