Tuchel explains  decision on re-substituting Callum Hudson-Odion in Southampton vs Chelsea



Callum Hudson- Odoi

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel made a brutal decision during the second half of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Southampton in pursuit of a winning goal.

Tuchel had brought Callum Hudson-Odoi on to replace injured Tammy Abraham when the blues were one goal down at halftime after Takumi Minamino’s fine shot put the hosts ahead.

But he then removed Hudson-Odoi with 16 minutes to go as the German brought in Hakim Ziyech for the final quarter of an hour.

“I wasn’t happy with his energy, attitude with the counter-pressing,” the former Paris Saint-Germain coach told BT Sport about his decision on Hudson-Odoi after the game.

However, Tuchel said, “it will all be forgotten tomorrow”.

Mason Mount’s penalty goal canceled Takumi Minamino’s goal in the first half as the both side share the points.

On the game, Tuchel added: “Yes, we had every chance and every chance to win.

“We were very good in 80 meters of the pitch but the last 20, I wasn’t happy.”
