Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has admitted that he’s fed up with the situation of Chelsea defender Thiago Silva.

The veteran Brazilian was called up for international duty by his country, and will face an extended period of quarantine upon his return.

Silva will miss Chelsea’s next game against Brentford, and Blues boss Thomas Tuchel admits he’s not happy with the situation but can’t do much about it.

“He will go and then he will play for Brazil, and then he will come back on the match day versus Brentford,” said Tuchel.

“This is the life of international breaks in 2021. Like it or not, what can I do?

“He’s our player and he arrives on the match day back from a country where he then needs to do quarantine. Is this a good solution for us as a club? No, but we cannot hold himm back. It’s impossible.

“If they call him, he needs to go, otherwise he gets suspended by FIFA. So there is no choice. You simply have to live with it.”
