Thomas Tuchel admits comfort eating chocolate to cope with Brentford & Real Madrid defeats


Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has admitted that he had to binge out on chocolate to cope with reviewing his side’s recent humiliations at the hands of Brentford and Real Madrid.

The Blues gave up a lead to get thumped 4-1 by underdogs Brentford, before welcoming Real to Stamford Bridge and coming undone to a Karim Benzema hat-trick.

“The amount of chocolate I needed was immense to go through the match again and compensate,” Tuchel admitted.

“You sit there in the middle of the night, it is not nice, you start writing and writing and writing and you realise that you are writing more and more, more minutes with a certain way of explaining things so that you don’t forget it.

“At some point, you press the button to watch it in double speed, just so it passes quickly and then you know you’re not in a good place. At some point, you have to stop and take a walk into the kitchen or the lounge and come back and press to calm down. It was not nice to watch.”
