​Van der Vaart slams ‘dragon’ Chelsea boss Tuchel after Real Madrid reaction: Do it with style!

Former Dutch attacker Rafael van der Vaart launches an attack on Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel.

Ex-Ajax, Real Madrid and Tottenham midfielder van der Vaart has always been outspoken as a pundit.

His latest comments come after the Blues lost their Champions League quarter-final tie against Real Madrid 5-4 on aggregate, despite winning the second leg 3-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Speaking about Tuchel’s post-game comments about the referee on Dutch TV station Ziggo Sport, Van der Vaart said: “I like respect. If you win, give respect to the opponent, and if you lose I think respect is even more beautiful.

“Carlo Ancelotti, for example, never does anything wrong. Never. But then you see this dragon [beastly, angry person]… I can only call it a dragon!

“If I had been Tuchel’s assistant I would have said, “We all lose sometimes, but do it with style.”

“Chelsea played a fantastic game and they have a great coach, I am one hundred per cent convinced of that.

“But if you lose and then you give this interview… that’s what makes me fume. What is Ancelotti supposed to do? Cry? They call [Tuchel] one of the best coaches in the world. Well, not now.

“This just comes off as really bad. You shouldn’t say this. As a coach you should just say that you are proud of your team. It’s not important whether a referee is smiling or not.”
