Champions League: What I will do if Chelsea is barred from flying for Lille game – Tuchel

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has vowed to drive a bus to Lille amid sanctions imposed on the club by the UK government.

The Blues have been given a reduced budget for away games.

Ahead of the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday, Tuchel said: “I think practically what’s changed is more for the guys who for example organised the journey to Lille, because they had to figure out how we were arriving there.

“My last information was that we are getting a plane. So we can go by plane and come back by plane. If not, we’ll go by train. If not, we’ll go by bus. If not, I’ll drive a seven-seater!

“Honestly, I will do it. You can mark my words, I will do it to arrive there.

“If you’d asked me 20 or 30 years ago, to be in charge of a Champions League match, what I was willing to do, I’d say: ‘Ok, where do I have to be and when?’

“Why should this change? I will be there and we will be there. Of course, organisation wise, there are some negotiations going on and talks, but it doesn’t influence me.”
