Thomas Tuchel talked about Jorginho’s error and Chelsea’s overall performance against Manchester United on Sunday.


Thomas Tuchel offered a rather hilarious excuse for Jorginho’s mishap during Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Manchester United.

In an enthralling contest, the Blues missed their opportunity to regain their three-point lead as they shared points with the Red Devils.

Shockingly, the visiting team took the lead as Jadon Sancho took advantage of a blunder from Jorginho which was completely unlike him. However, the Italian redeemed himself by scoring the equalising penalty later in the game.


After the game, Chelsea boss Tuchel backed his team captain despite a costly mistake. He told the reporters: “He misjudged the situation and I think he was heavily disturbed from the lights. It happens.”

“It takes a lot of courage and personality to not be affected during the match and to have the courage to take the penalty. I am very happy that he did it.”

Tuchel added: “I am absolutely happy with what the players put in. We had so many high ball recoveries, so can we maybe create more chances from this superiority and ball wins? Yes, maybe.”


“So the energy is right, the quality is right, and the result is the result. Today it wasn’t in our favour. It should’ve been but we have to accept.”
