“I don’t know if I am concerned, but we are aware of it. It changes almost every day, so we cannot do much about it,” Thomas Tuchel said about the uncertainty around Chelsea following Roman Abramovich being sanctioned.
“We didn’t cause the situation, in the moment it seems like business is more or less protected, but let’s see. It can change tomorrow.
“It is not a relief for me personally, it is more joy [playing tonight]. I feel privileged to have the chance to be involved in games and coaching football, which is what I love.
“It is big news,” he added after the game, speaking to Sky Sports. “It is huge and has a huge impact of course so it is the subject of the talks.
“Maybe on a day like this you would talk about the Champions League games last night but nobody talks about this. So it nice to enter a schedule before a match as it helps to focus as we’re used to it.
“We cannot influence it so we allowed ourselves to enjoy it. We have the privilege to play and sometimes it’s good to sweat it out. We tried to work hard to get the focus out.
“I would love to talk about sport but of course I understand you have a lot of questions. We are also an entertainment so that’s why it is like this.”
Following reports from The Telegraph, Tuchel does not think about leaving the club amid the current uncertainty.
For the boss, it’ll be far more important who follows Abramovich and how they will manage the football club.
