Tuchel may exclude Romelu Lukaku from squad against Liverpool
Chelsea’s manager is considering dropping Romelu Lukaku from the squad against Liverpool after the striker conducted a controversial interview behind the club that was published last week.
A little about the topic
Thomas Tuchel will reveal his squad to the squad tomorrow, and the Belgian may not even be on the bench even after being deemed critical of his manager’s tactics. It has since emerged that neither the club nor the player’s representatives knew about the interview in advance. It looks like he made an agreement directly with a journalist in London.
The Belgian footballer is likely to face some disciplinary action, despite the scale of the upcoming Chelsea-Liverpool clash at Stamford Bridge on Sunday night. The 28-year-old’s comments became football’s biggest talking point Thursday night, outraging the West Londoner’s fan base.
Romelu Lukaku said that he is not happy with the situation and this is only natural. according to Lukaku, the head coach decided to play on a different system and he should not give up, he needs to continue to work hard and be a professional. Romelu Lukaku is not happy with the situation, but he is a vaccinator and should not give up.
The timing of the story was unfortunate as it was published three weeks after it was filmed, while it came out amid a slump in Blues form. While the context may have changed, the content of the quotes upset many people around Lukaku. Thomas was relaxed by persistent media questioning on Friday morning. However, behind closed doors, several sources said the manager was meaner than he looked with his £ 97.5m striker from Inter.
Who can replace Romelu Lukaku?
Havertz is well positioned to replace Romelu, despite a prolonged spell on the sidelines with the coronavirus. Chelsea also welcomed back Werner, but he is still believed to be fighting to overcome his own battle with the virus. There is also the option of playing Pulisic through the middle, but he has struggled to play a central role in recent weeks. It’s a bad time for Chelsea as Lukaku has been in good shape, scoring two goals in two games since returning from the coronavirus.
