Thomas Tuchel is visibly upset with Timo Werner for missing a glorious chance against Real Madrid – The German striker was presented with a golden opportunity in the 10th minute but fluffed it
Pulisic eventually opened the scoring for Chelsea, but Karim Benzema restored parity to make it 1-1 Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has rued Timo Werne’s missed opportunity during their first-leg Champions League clash with Real Madrid in the Spanish capital.
Tuchel expressed frustration saying he was sad and angry that after the German striker missed a begging chance in the 10th minute of the encounter on Tuesday night, April 27. Werner had a golden opportunity to slot home the opener but goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was equal to the task to deny the front-man adding to his catalogue of recent missed chances when he had looked set to score.
Pulisic then put Chelsea ahead five minutes later, but Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema restored parity in the 28th minute to end it 1-1 and then set up a tantalising secong leg. However, Tuchel believes the situation could have been different had Werner scored that goal earlier in the game.
The Chelsea manager said via Mirror: “He missed a big one in West Ham now he missed another big one here,” the Blues boss told reporters. “That does not help, but it also does not help to cry about it or to regret it all the time. It is like this. “We will never stop pushing, we will never stop believing and I have the feeling that everybody accepts the situation like it is and as a striker it is easy, you score the next game and nobody speaks about it.”
