Former Tottenham ace Jamie O’Hara has slammed all the excuses Thomas Tuchel gave after an uninspiring defeat to Leeds United at Elland Road.

The Blue were beaten 3-0, but Tuchel insisted that his team were the better side, and also claimed that his coaching staff travelled by bus for the games, which made it hard to prepare for the game.

Speaking on talkSPORT on the morning after the game, O’Hara said: “For Tuchel to come out after the game [and make excuses like] having to get a bus, saying they were the better team and that it was Mendy and that Leeds weren’t a better than them. Leeds were way better than Chelsea.

“Chelsea weren’t good enough. Give credit where it’s due. Leeds were fantastic.”

Speaking about Tuchel’s claims that the coaching staff had to travel up north to West Yorkshire by a bus, O’Hara said: “The coaching staff didn’t play 90 minutes so they didn’t have to worry about their legs and all that sort of nonsense so they had to get a coach. What am I hearing?

“The excuses…I’ll tell you what, try and listen to the fans and all the people who have got to drive up to these games and do these eight hour shifts.

“What about the Championship teams and the League One teams and the non-league sides that go all over the country on buses? Get in the real world, Thomas.”
