Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was upset to see the referee of the meeting “having a good time” with Carlo Ancelotti after the final whistle of the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final between Real and Chelsea (2-3, AP ), Tuesday .
Thomas Tuchel goes up against the referee after the second leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League second leg between Real Madrid and Chelsea (2-3, AP). If he didn’t quite digest the goal given to Marcos Alonso for a light hand, he pointed the finger in particular at the behavior of pole Sizmon Marciniak, who was very cooperative with Carlo Ancelotti after the final whistle. And the Germans found that particularly unfair.
“This is not the right time to do this”
“I was disappointed that the referee had a good time with Carlo,” he said. When I wanted to say thank you, he was smiling and laughing with the opposing coach. I think it’s the right time to do it after the final whistle No time. It’s not just about today.”
The former PSG technician also referred to the privileged treatment in all two matches. “When you play against Real Madrid, you probably don’t expect everyone to be courageous. I felt the small decisions in the first phase and even today,” he said.
