Chelsea coach ​Tuchel believes Liverpool counterpart Klopp over postponements

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has no reason to doubt Liverpool’s COVID-19 outbreak last week, which caused a postponement of their League Cup semi final against Arsenal.

The Reds were set to play the first leg of the semi last week, when Chelsea played Tottenham in the first leg at Stamford Bridge.

However, the game was called off when Liverpool reported a COVID-19 outbreak in the squad.

At the weekend, manager Jurgen Klopp stated many of those cases were false positives.

Asked if he believed Klopp, Tuchel told reporters: “No interpretation, I believe him and people will look into it. It can happen. We had one false positive test at Wolverhampton. One false positive and sent Jorginho straight home.

“I know what you mean as we had games postponed when we arrived at Wolves. We thought we had a big case with seven positives so we thought we maybe had the possibility to postpone the match.

“Decisions were taken and you know my opinion but I will not comment on other club’s situations. We struggled and we still can struggle anytime like anybody can. I don’t know enough about the situation to comment.”
