ESPN FC pundit Jan Age Fjortoft ripped into Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel for his excuse after the loss to Leeds United.

Tuchel failed to credit Leeds United for the victory and insisted that Chelsea were the better side.

Age Fjortoft however slammed Tuchel’s excuses and insisted he should have complimented Jesse Marsch’s side.

Speaking on ESPN FC, he said: “I felt that Thomas Tuchel after the game could have maybe given one compliment to Leeds United because that game, the energy and intensity of that game, was excellent. The goals well taken. I don’t like that.

“As a leader I always admire Tuchel because he showed in Paris and Dortmund that he can handle those kind of situations. But talking about the plane today that is just silly.

“I don’t know who he is talking to and I consider myself quite wise but when I listened to that I heard just a defensive coach who doesn’t want to praise Leeds United for a great win and that is not worthy of Chelsea. Chelsea should say when they’re 3-0 down and great taken goals. So deservedly losing today.

“He’s speaking about how nobody helps me, I’m all on my own and blah blah blah, sitting in his golden prison. The manager there using the media to speak to internal things. I think that’s what Tuchel is doing now, he’s putting pressure on people to get him a striker.”
