In an interview with Sky Sports, Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel admits that he misses his family, who remained in Paris.
It’s been a month since Thomas Tuchel took control of Chelsea. Under his orders, the London team has found a smile again. Before facing Newcastle this Monday evening on behalf of the 24th day of the Premier League, the Blues remain on a series of four straight wins in the league. Enough to put a smile on the face of the German coach, sacked from PSG just before Christmas. Professionally fulfilled, Tuchel is however a little less fulfilled in his private life in London. After leaving the club in the capital, his family decided to stay in Paris so that their children could complete their school year. Given the health restrictions, especially with Great Britain, Tuchel can no longer see his family.
“I miss my children a lot”
“It’s not an easy situation, it’s impossible to travel at the moment, he regretted in an interview with Sky Sports. Everything is well organized. The children go to school but it would be good if we could be together. It was our choice and we have to face it like many other people. It’s really not easy, I miss them a lot. “
Even Valentine’s Day on Sunday came down to a family reunion on Zoom, “which is pretty sad,” the Chelsea coach admits. Thomas Tuchel does not want to make people cry in the cottages. “We are privileged. We are safe and healthy so I do not want to pity him too much. I would like the situation to be different but the health is good and the family is united but if there is a distance between us. “
