Thomas Tuchel doesn’t care about Ronaldo brace

Chelsea FC manager Thomas Tuchel has said he is only focused on Romelu Lukaku instead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s threat.

Tuchel was a delighted manager as he watched Lukaku smash in a brace at Stamford Bridge last Saturday during a 3-0 win over an impressive Aston Villa.

But before that event, Ronaldo had also scored a double for United. The German manager was thus asked if the Portuguese star will outshine Lukaku wish more goals.

"I couldn't care less as long as Lukaku scores for us,” Tuchel said via the Mirror

“Honestly, I know you'd like to have a good answer but unfortunately, I don't have one. Lukaku was decisive for us today and that is what we are looking for.

"He wants to score for Chelsea, help the team with his goals, that is what he did today.

"That is why he is here. He is not shy to speak this ambition out loud because he is full of confidence and is the kind of personality that can handle it. This is what he showed in the first games and today,” Tuchel concluded.

Coming up next for the Blues is the start of their UEFA Champions League title defence in West London.
