According to The Sun, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has twice been ordered by the referee to change his club-issued jacket during games recently.

This is because it has been confusing the fourth officials and assistant referees.

Against Leeds United, Tuchel wore Chelsea’s traditional dark blue jacket but switched to the much paler ‘Arctic’ colour of the away kit in the second half.

He was ordered to make the change at half-time because fourth official Anthony Taylor and the ref Kevin Friend’s assistants were having trouble distinguishing Tuchel from his players because of the colour clash with the shirts of the Chelsea players on the pitch – particularly when they were peering along the touchline during play.

The same incident also happened when Tuchel was asked to switch jackets in only his third game in charge when he took Chelsea to London rivals Tottenham in early February.
