Tuchel uncertain about future fixtures amid Covid-19 outbreak – The Star, Kenya

“Now we will sit in a bus for three more hours together and tomorrow we will do training and before we will be tested and wait for the result.”

Tuchel reiterated his concerns about the safety of the players given the possibility of more infections as the squad train and travel together. The German was also worried about the ramifications of having to rush back players from injury due to a lack of players.

“I understand everybody when they say look they have still 14 players but if you look a bit more into detail … you see Trevoh Chalobah with two training sessions, you see Mateo Kovacic one training session, N’Golo Kante one training session,” he added.

“We were putting a huge risk of health and safety to the players, also physically not only from COVID …”

Chelsea are scheduled to face Brentford in a League Cup semi-final on Wednesday before Premier League matches against Aston Villa, Brighton & Hove Albion and Liverpool.
