Thomas Tuchel is super excited with his team performance despite facing issues from the Government as he recommend Reece James pulling out of Englad squad.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is excited about his team despite recent issues faced by the club.

Tuchel side defeated Championship side Middlesbrough in the FA Cup, a team that crashed out Manchester United and Tottenham respectively in the competition.

Speaking after the game Tuchel was super excited that his team is fully focused and not distracted by outside noise.

“I’m super happy because we were very focused,” he said. “There was a lot of effort against the ball and we did not allow big chances.

“We defended and attacked as a team. On the ball, we were calm and controlled the match. We managed to find ways through the gaps to escape their high pressing and find spaces behind the line and create fast attacks.

“We scored in decisive moments and in the second half we created more chances. I’m very happy and very impressed because it was another very focused performance and a deserved win.”

Chelsea will have change of ownership sooner or later but Tuchel claims not knowing anything about the ownership lately.

“I knew about the timescale [of offers being made] but I don’t know anything about the offers. I don’t know how many offers or who the offers are from and I’m also not so interested in the details of this process.

“I’m informed about the guidelines of the process and that’s enough for me. The offers are in now and the board tries to find a decision with the government as soon as possible.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea’s right back Reece James was selected by England coach Gareth Southgate for the international friendlies.

The defender has been out for the Blues due to injury and Tuchel insists the club will recommend James pulling out  of the squad as he continues his rehabilitation.

“Petr [Cech] will have this chat because of course the recommendation is that he does not go. He’s still in individual training otherwise we would have brought him to Lille and we would have brought him here.

“He needs one more week of individual rehabilitation and I think we can provide this much better. It’s not the job of the national team to do this.”
