Chelsea coach Tuchel worries about player safety | Football news

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel says the Premier League is playing a dangerous game with player safety after the London club faced Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-0 at Molineux on Sunday.
Chelsea were angry and disappointed after their request to postpone Sunday’s game was denied despite seven COVID-19 cases in their warehouse, including Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Tuchel is concerned about the growing number of infections in his squad and believes that a great deal is possible by traveling together and sharing a changing room.
“We talk a lot about player safety and protection, but I’m not sure we did that today,” Tuchel told Sky Sports.
“If we have tomorrow and the next test, the next positive one, I would like to talk to the Premier League about what to expect,” added the German.
“We were made to sit on the bus for three hours and travel together, we were in meetings, at dinner and lunch together, and the situation doesn’t feel like it will stop if we continue like this.”
Tuchel fears that they could do without other players in the quarter-finals of the League Cup on Wednesday in Brentford.
“If they force us to play Brentford, shouldn’t we make it or not train? What should we do?”
The Chelsea manager thinks the club made a strong case for postponing the Wolves game.
“We asked not to play. It was refused … it’s very difficult to understand, we are concerned about the health of the players,” he said before the game.
