We want the same power, amoun of people in the box when we finish our attacks. That does not change [with Romelu Lukaku’s absence].”
Thomas Tuchel on Kai Havertz: There is only way to make it and stay on the pitch, that’s performance. Kai wasn’t at his highest level. It was necessary for him to wait some matches, others were in better shape. He did what he needed to do – work hard, determination to score. There is so much talent and potential there. He just needs to show it.
Thomas Tuchel on Norwich City boss Daniel Farke: I like him a lot, firstly as a person. Very nice and humble. He’s a very good manager in terms of people management. I would’ve liked to be a player under him because he gives you a lot of confidence and trust. I hope we can have the better end tomorrow, to do everything to win. But he’s doing a fantastic job.
Thomas Tuchel on Billy Gilmour: I love Billy. He decided to go to have a better chance to get some minutes. We want him to perform. If you decide to go on loan, it’s as simple as that – you need to be on the pitch, perform, be a top player, if you want to make it here.
Thomas Tuchel on Billy Gilmour: He’s our player. we love him, but changing a club is a huge risk, huge step. Now’s not the time to speak about coming back. He just needs to show what he can do. No coach will leave the best players out, that’s what he needs to prove. That Norwich is a better team with him.
Thomas Tuchel on Romelu Lukaku: The body didn’t demand a break, it was an accident. He had a muscle injury. It’s just some percentage. Please don’t underestimate the effort these players go through. There’s a lot of things going on, sometimes you get tired. If you constantly turn the wheel, be the top dog, you can get tired. Maybe 3/4/5 per cent. Maybe you lack the enthusiasm.
Thomas Tuchel on Romelu Lukaku: “There is no major problem, we left him on the pitch and we felt him happy when we took the decision. I felt him totally in the match. Luck will come back, chances will be created. From now on, we make him come back as soon as possible, be positive. At the same time, we have to push the guys who are here.”
Thomas Tuchel on Hakim Ziyech: “It’s maybe the sideline again. He fought his way into the team at the beginning of the season because of performance in pre-season. [The injury] cost him a lot. Maybe today I don’t feel him 100 per cent free with the shoulders.”
Thomas Tuchel on Hakim Ziyech: “We started him several times [after injury] in Premier League and #UCL. Even if no pain, subconsciously, there is something that limits him in his movement and freedom to turn, to accelerate and decelerate. We need time, patience to fight his way back in the team. We will never lose trust and patience with him, he will stay an important player for sure.”
