Check what Tuchel said after Chelsea lost the FA Cup to Leicester City

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has made his mind known by the performance of his team against Leicester City in the FA Cup final.

Chelsea lost the match by 1-0 as Leicester City win their first ever FA Cup trophy.

Speaking in the post-match interview, Tuchel explained: “We are disappointed and not angry with our performance from the boys.

“I think the performance is enough to win it. I think today we were unlucky and we’ve never hidden that we need to have that to win at this level. You need momentum, decision making, little details, the referee.

“I think we defended well, counter-pressed well, didn’t allow counter-attacks by one of the best counter-attacking sides in Europe.”

The Chelsea boss continued: “Our decision-making in the first half was too hectic, we tried to force the solution.

“We created two against two and three against three situations that were more promising than we made of it.

“We had a big chance with Azpi [Azpilicueta] and in the second half we controlled the game. We conceded a goal from nothing. It’s a fantastic goal and a lucky goal.

“We have a chance from Mason [Mount], an offside goal that was very close. We were unlucky today.”

A goal from Youri Tielemans was enough for Leicester City to lift their first-ever FA Cup.

It was a poor performance from Chelsea but hopefully, we will focus on preparing for the Champions League final now.
