Thomas Tuchel's 7-word response when asked about VAR decision during Chelsea vs West Ham

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has delivered his response on the farcical VAR decision that cost West Ham a result today.

The Hammers were completely robbed of a point against Chelsea this afternoon.

Maxwel Cornet smashed home immediately after Chelsea’s second goal to tie the scores at 2-2. The goal was ruled out by VAR though after West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen was adjudged to have fouled Chelsea goalkeeper Édouard Mendy.

It really was an awful decision and hurt so much. We may not have deserved to win the game but we certainly didn’t deserve to lose it.

The standard of officiating in England really is in the gutter. And it needs to be improved drastically.

It seems as though Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel doesn’t agree though…

Tuchel delivers response to VAR decision during Chelsea vs West Ham

The Chelsea boss addressed the media after the game tonight.

And he responded when asked whether VAR made the right call by disallowing the West Ham equaliser, as quoted by Roshane Thomas:

“It is clear it was a foul.”

All you can do is laugh at that isn’t it.

Can you imagine his thoughts on the matter had the same decision been made at the other end?

It is what it is isn’t it! The so-called big six always get the decisions in their favour and until there are independent regulators brought in, that won’t change.

Tuchel’s laughable verdict on the VAR decision that cost West Ham sums up the arrogance of these big clubs and their managers.

Hopefully our luck changes soon because we deserve it after that abomination of a decision today.
