Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel was set to be the ‘bad guy’ in Saturday’s FA Cup final after accepting Pep Guardiola’s bold allegations about Liverpool earlier in the week. The Reds go to the final knowing that a win will keep their slim hopes of achieving that historic treble alive. However, the Reds received a lot of applause in the media for the fantastic season they enjoyed under Jurgen Klopp. Which, in all honesty, seemed to shook his competitive opponent and fellow Guardiola mastermind.
Speaking after his team beat Newcastle United 5-0 to move three points away from the league, the Manchester City coach made sharp statements when asked about Liverpool in his post-match interview. The Spaniard noted that everyone in the UK wanted Liverpool to win the league and even launched a cheeky digging in aim at their lack of Premier League titles. “Everyone in this country supports Liverpool – the media and everyone else,” confirmed.
In fact, Thomas Tuchel was in agreement with Guardiola, the German sympathizer with the Spanish technician.
“There is no reason to be jealous, Klopo is a wonderful guy, funny, one of the best coaches in the world and that’s what he does. When he was coaching Dortmund, the whole country loved Dortmund. Now he coaches Liverpool and you feel that the whole country loves Liverpool. It all comes back to his credit. And that’s what you have to face if you play against him. But that’s always the fun part, and if we’re the bad guys tomorrow, no problem. We accept that role. We don’t want to have the country’s sympathy tomorrow — we want to win the championship.” He declared his compatriot and opponent in the English Championship.
