Chelsea boss Tuchel: No special changes needed for Real Madrid

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel insists they won’t overreact to Saturday’s 4-1 home defeat to Brentford.

Tuchel, assessing what is needed now in the build-up to the home leg of the Champions League quarterfinal tie against Real Madrid, made it clear that despite going into the game on the back of a heavy loss, and facing the Spanish league leaders, there is no need for sudden change.

“We do what do, we don’t need special things now,” he said.

“We need to rely on the things and the trust that we built throughout the whole year.

“You rely on your routines to refocus, the routines to be strong in training, the routines to focus on the meetings that we have, and to do that in the best way possible.

“I don’t think that we will do crazy stuff now and give crazy speeches or whatever. We do what we need to do to prepare the next match as good as possible, it doesn’t matter if it’s [against] a big name or not such a big name, there are only tough matches out there for us in the last weeks of the season.

“Now we need to do our stuff better, on a higher level, more committed, more mature and we cannot lose concentration for a minute because you can get punished for that in the strongest league. It’s very untypical for us but it happened on Saturday.

“A win is always the most helpful to prepare the next match, so now it’s a bit harder because we have to digest the big loss.

“We didn’t see it coming really, and also not within the match, which is maybe the problem. I didn’t see it coming and the players didn’t see it coming so I’m involved in it. So we will now find a way to digest it and prepare for Real Madrid, and Real Madrid will do what they want to do with it.”
