Champions League: Tuchel reveals why Real Madrid eliminated Chelsea

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has bemoaned their lack of luck, as they were dumped out of the Champions League by Real Madrid on Tuesday night.

The Blues travelled to the Santiago Bernabeu, looking to overturn a 3-1 deficit from the first leg.

They raced into a three-goal lead against Los Blancos, thanks to goals from Mason Mount, Antonio Rudiger and Timo Werner.

Editorial picks:

Madrid fought back to score twice, thanks to Rodrygo in regulation time and Karim Benzema in extra time.

“We were unlucky. We got beaten by pure individual quality, of conversion, on our mistakes.

“Two mistakes. That you can’t have against Real Madrid. We were unlucky. We deserved to go through,” Tuchel said.

He’s best in the world – Cole tells Chelsea’s new owners not to allow Tuchel leave despite defeat

Former Chelsea winger, Joe Cole has urged the club’s new owners to ensure Thomas Tuchel is tied to a new long-term contract.

This is despite the fact that Chelsea crashed out of the Champions League last night and may end the season without a trophy.

Chelsea showed character, putting on a superb display in the quarter-final reverse fixture at the Bernabeu.

The Blues appeared to have defeated the LaLiga Kings comfortably after taking a 3-0 lead (4-3 on aggregate) with Mason Mount, Rudiger and Timo Werner all getting on the scoresheet.

However, the LaLiga leaders came back after Luka Modric made a stunning assist, which Rodrygo fired in to send the match to extra-time.

Karim Benzema, again headed home to secure a 5-4 aggregate win.

And Cole, a multiple title winner with Chelsea, told BT Sport: “He knows in no uncertain terms it’s silverware where you are judged at Chelsea, that’s where the club has been for the last 20-odd years.

“I think the way he’s conducted himself from the first leg to how he’s got a team, adjusted it tactically, I know there’s uncertainty at Chelsea now, but whatever happens the first thing whoever comes in is to sit down with Thomas Tuchel, because he’s still the best young-ish manager in the world.”
