Thomas Tuchel Speaks on Christensen’s Decision not to Play Against Liverpool | Read
The German was speaking at a press conference ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League game against Leicester City on Thursday, May 19th, 2022. According to Tuchel, the Danish player came to him on the eve of the game against Liverpool asking to be excused from the game.
He had his reasons, they are private and confidential. But it was not the first time as you can see over the last weeks we had some of the same situations why he did not play so regularly. We thought that we are in a good progression and good development because he played very strong in the match before the final against Leeds. But the conversation took place and we have to respect it and we, of course, respected it and he has our support.
Chelsea fans might never see Christensen play for them again as he is reportedly set to join Barcelona as a free agent next season.
