LONDON: Thomas Tuchel commented on Romelu Lukaku’s statement saying he was unhappy at Chelsea, and promised to face his striker.
Lukaku, who was signed for £ 97.5 million last summer, claimed he was unhappy with the situation at Chelsea.
“Of course I don’t like it because it brings in voices we don’t need and it doesn’t help. But at the same time we don’t want to make things worse.
“You know how to report out of context, it’s so easy to cut a sentence, make a headline and then realize it’s not too bad and maybe he didn’t mean it that way.
“But honestly we don’t like it, I don’t like it, because it’s voices we don’t need. We want a calm and focused atmosphere, so it doesn’t help.
“I don’t think he’s unhappy. For me it’s the other way around, that’s why I’m so shocked. We’re going to take action in private,” Tuchel said of Lukaku’s statement.
In an interview with Italian media Lukaku said: “Physically I’m fine. But I’m not happy with the situation at Chelsea.
“Tuchel chose to play with a different system – I’m not going to give up, I’m going to be a professional. I’m not happy with the situation but I’m a professional – I can’t give up now.”
Lukaku has scored five goals in eight appearances as Chelsea’s starting XI since returning to the club last summer.
The 28 -year -old Belgium striker has also stated that he will return to Inter before ending his career.
