Thomas Tuchel has rebuffed claims that he was employed by Chelsea to improve the performance of Kai Haverts and Timo Werner.
In his post-match interview, journalist Dan King mentioned that the ‘biggest challenge’ and ‘main reason’ Tuchel got the job was to improve the club’s attack with King stressing that the German had to make all the expensively assembled attacking talent come together and play well’ something that didn’t sit well with the former PSG man.
“My job is to win games. My job is not to put some expensive guys together, I absolutely don’t agree,” Tuchel said.
The interview came after Chelsea was held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton on Saturday afternoon; the game being the first time Tuchel dropped points in a league game since being appointed the manager of the club.
Chelsea remains in fourth after the draw with the Blues now at risk of being leapfrogged by West Ham who play Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
