UCL: You’re not good enough – Thomas Tuchel to Chelsea stars after 1-0 loss to Juve

Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel has described his team that lost 1-0 to Juventus in the Champions League group stage match on Wednesday as slow and tired.

The German said his team was not ‘good enough’ during the disappointing loss to the struggling Italians.

Federico Bernardeschi set up Federico Chiesa for a calmly finished goal 10 minutes into the second half to give Juve all three points.

Thomas Tuchel’s side struggled to break down the Juventus defence and the German coach was disappointed with the goal his team conceded.

“It’s impossible at this level to concede a goal like this. We know what’s coming, we got punished for it,” the German manager said after the match.

“We started not sharp enough, the first 10-15 minutes should’ve been much more sharp, put more dangerous balls into the box.

“We had two crucial ball losses where we almost gave goals away. We struggled to create our own rhythm as they were so deep.

“We were not good enough, slow, tired, mentally slow with decision making, it’s a strange one to analyse.”

Chelsea have now suffered back-to-back defeats following their 1-0 loss to Manchester City in the Premier League over the weekend.
