Thomas Tuchel Provides Injury Update And Possible Return Date For Kovacic



Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has issued an injury update on midfield maestro Mateo Kovacic ahead of Tuesday’s game against Real Madrid.

Mateo Kovacic picked up an injury in training prior to Chelsea’s UCL quarter-final second leg clash against Porto.

The Blues will play the Spanish Giants away from home in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Semifinal, and Mateo Kovacic is the only Chelsea player who will be out of the squad due to injury.

Thomas Tuchel confirmed this while speaking to the club’s official website, as he revealed the Croatian won’t be fit enough to face Madrid but could possibly make a return against Fulham at the weekend.

“At the moment, we’re suffering a bit with our two number sixes because of the injury for Mateo,’ explained Tuchel after our victory at West Ham.” Tuchel said while speaking to the club’s official website.

“Hopefully he can come back against Fulham but he did not train with the team yet so I think that Tuesday will be too early, unfortunately. He was so happy to play against his former team-mates and he is a crucial player for us.

“He could have helped a lot in the last games against Brighton and West Ham with his technique and his ball runs but it’s like this. The team is doing an amazing job and we have to keep on going.” He concluded.
