Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has come out to say that Reece James’ first-half dismissal against Liverpool was baffling. He recently revealed that he doesn’t even know the rules surrounding red cards anymore.
According to him, he doesn’t like early red cards in general because it spoils the game, but he was proud to see his boys show resilience to earn a point.
Tuchel added that Chelsea would have to live with the referee’s decision and look ahead to future games.
His words, “The red card – I’m not even sure anymore if it’s the rules or not the rules,”
“You have to accept the decision. He maybe would have changed his mind with moving pictures.”
“In the end it maybe would have stayed the same. I don’t like early red cards in general because it spoils the game. In the end it was a tough and hard fight. We showed great resilience and deserved the point.”
“We decided to stay in a back five. We wanted to stay active and make it hard to create chances. The first 10 minutes seemed endless. The last five minutes I was actually praying we take what we deserved. It was a hard and a tough one, but a very strong second half defensively.”
