Chelsea boss Tuchel snaps back at media: Trophyless season?!

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel insists his players have what it takes to win trophies.

Their FA Cup final defeat on Saturday was a third in a row.

Tuchel said, “I think we have everything it takes to win trophies. We proved it – and one of your colleagues wanted to convince me that we had a trophyless season if I heard it right – but we have the Club World Cup and European Super Cup. I don’t feel sorry that this was the beginning of the season and winter.

“We did everything to win these two matches and ok, we have to accept we have an opponent and they deserve to win these matches and they did it. As I said, maybe it suits us [cup competitions] given the run in Champions League last season and FA Cup last season, and now again we were good in Champions League and was strong in the domestic cups.

“We can produce peak performances and we have the mentality in the club to shape the mentality of the players to have these peak performances but over the last years, Man City and Liverpool have proved you need to show that at a level of consistency we don’t have and that we have struggled with. So we need to find it, build it, create it. It’s a bit harder given the last months.”
