Report: Tuchel speaks on Mendy’s tactical error, Koulibaly’s red card and plans ahead to win

No doubt, Chelsea performances this season, yet need good improvement ahead of other clubs, compared to last season where the Blues were performing well in the last season.

Although, Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, speaks on goalkeeper Edouard Mendy’s tactical errors following his side’s Premier League defeat to Leeds United on Sunday. And he commented on defender Kalidou Koulibaly’s red card against Leeds.

Chelsea lost against Leeds United at Elland Road in a Premier League tie on Sunday afternoon. Three goals from Brenden Aaronson, Rodrigo Moreno and Jack Harrison gave Leeds the victory over Chelsea.

During the encounter, Brenden Aaronson capitalized on an awful Edouard Mendy mistake and Rodrigo headed in from a free-kick, while Koulibaly got a second-half red card.

Speaking on Mendy’s error, Tuchel said at his post-match press conference after that game,

He knows himself. With these kinds of mistakes, we don’t have to speak a lot. It’s a huge mistake at a crucial time in the match. It does not help and he’s the one who is most disappointed.”

Asked if Koulibaly’s red card was fair, Tuchel added,

We cannot get frustrated in Premier League games. It should be pure joy to play in an atmosphere like this.”
