“Get in the real world Thomas and stop making excuses” – Jamie O’Hara blasts Tuchel for not giving ‘credit where it’s due’ after Chelsea defeat


Thomas Tuchel has been criticized for making excuses after Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat at Leeds United by player-turned-pundit Jamie O’Hara. According to The Mail , the Blues boss refused to credit Jesse Marsch’s side after the thrashing at Elland Road, despite the hosts being dominant throughout the encounter.

Tuchel blamed disrupted travel on the way to west Yorkshire for the defeat and has been roundly slammed for being a perceived poor sport. Former Tottenham midfielder O’Hara clearly wasn’t having the 48-year-old’s comments, as the outspoken pundit told TalkSPORT:

“I was disappointed with Tuchel. He gave Leeds no credit whatsoever. Leeds were absolutely fantastic, they were brilliant all over the park.

“Every player on that pitch was a nine-out-of-ten. Some were a ten-out- of-ten. Tuchel was making excuses about getting a bus, saying they were the better team, it was Mendy’s mistake and Leeds weren’t better.

“Leeds were way better than Chelsea. Chelsea weren’t good enough. Give credit where it’s due. Leeds outrun them in every department.”

“The coaching staff had to get a bus? Poor them! They’re not playing 90 minutes. What am I hearing?! Try listening to the fans who do these eight-hour journeys, or the non- league sides who travel all over the country on buses, or drive their own cars. Get in the real world Thomas and stop making excuses.”
