Video: “We deserved to go through!” – Tuchel unhappy with referee as Chelsea crash out of UEFA Champions League

Thomas Tuchel complained that when he went to shake hands with Szymon Marciniak, he found the Polish referee laughing with the Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti.

“I think this is very, very bad timing – and I told him that,” the Chelsea manager said, after words had been exchanged.

That sensitivity was perhaps understandable after Chelsea had led 3-0, putting themselves within 10 minutes of the semi-final, only to concede twice and go out 5-4 on aggregate, leaving Tuchel to describe himself as “very disappointed and very proud at the same time”. Watch the video below.
