Thomas Tuchel reacts to Romelu Lukaku’s interview

Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Romelu Lukaku will hold head-to-head talks with Chelsea on Monday.

The Belgian recently admitted that he is “not happy” at Stamford Bridge after his transfer from Inter Milan for £ 97.5 million last summer.

Lukaku’s surprising comments to the Italian press were made a few weeks ago, but were not broadcast until the end of December.

Chelsea manager Tuchel eliminated the forward for Sunday’s Premier League game against Liverpool, which ended 2-2, as a result of the comments.

Now he’s ready to discuss his future with the Blues, with a January transfer potentially on the horizon.

Speaking after Chelsea’s draw against Liverpool, Tuchel said: “We will decide tomorrow, we will meet from there and inform them.”

And, according to US broadcaster NBC, Lukaku told his former Everton teammate Tim Howard about Monday’s meeting.

“I can’t say too much,” Lukaku supposedly said. “The situation is hot. I have another meeting on Monday. After that, I can say more.”

Lukaku’s recent interview stunned European football, leaving many wondering what’s next for the prolific forward. He has scored seven goals in 18 appearances for Chelsea this season.

“Physically I’m fine, even better than before,” he said. “After two years in Italy, in which I worked a lot at Inter with coaches and nutritionists, I am physically well.

“But I am not happy with the situation, this is normal. I think the coach has chosen to play with another system, I just have to not give up and keep working and be a professional.

“I am not happy with the situation, but I am a worker and I should not give up … I think that everything that happened was not supposed to happen like this.

“How I left Inter, how I communicated with the fans, this bothers me because it is not the right time now, but even when I left it was not the right time.

“Now I think it’s good to talk because I’ve always said that I have Inter in my heart, I’ll play there again, I really hope so.

“I am in love with Italy, this is the right time to speak up and let people know what really happened without speaking badly about people because I am not like that.”

Many have criticized Lukaku for his comments, including Trevor Sinclair. “I’m in absolute shock,” the former Premier League midfielder told talkSPORT.

“For him to come out with those comments, I think he should apologize to the Chelsea fans. That is disrespectful to the Chelsea fans.

“I think that’s disrespectful to the Chelsea manager. I would be surprised if he hadn’t had a conversation with Thomas Tuchel about this.”

Reacting to Lukaku’s comments, Tuchel said before the Liverpool game: “We don’t like it, of course, because it brings noise that we don’t need and it’s not useful.

“[But] we don’t want to get more out of it than it really is. It’s very easy to take lines out of context.

“It’s very easy to shorten lines, make headlines and then realize that it’s not that bad and it’s not what he meant.”
