Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has admitted that the drama surrounding him and his players following the European Super League controversy affected his mind heading to the game against Brighton.

Apart from the media backlash, Chelsea fans had blocked the Fulham Road, causing the team bus to be delayed.

However, speaking ahead of the game against West Ham on Saturday, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he doesn’t need Blues owner Roman Abramovich to apologise to him over the incident.

“Yes it has been distracting, but it’s the owner’s club, it’s not my club,” said Tuchel in his press conference on Friday afternoon.

“I’m part of the club, but it’s the owner and the club’s decision, and now they change that decision.

“There’s no need to apologise to me directly, my job is to adapt to the circumstances. And were we distracted? Yeah clearly.

“Me personally I arrived in a state of mind on Tuesday at the stadium that was clearly not the mindset that I normally arrive in, for a match. But that’s already in the past, and like I said, I don’t think they need to apologise to me.”
