‘Show respect’: Thomas Tuchel hits out at Chelsea fans for Abramovich chant – video | Football

Thomas Tuchel has criticised the Chelsea fans who interrupted a moment of applause for Ukraine by singing about their billionaire Russian owner Roman Abramovich.

‘It’s not the moment to do this,’ the Chelsea manager said of the chants that were heard from a significant contingent of the travelling support before the Premier League game against Burnley. ‘If we show solidarity, we should show solidarity together.’

The gesture, which was met by boos from the Burnley fans, marred a planned minute’s applause for the Ukrainian people. Tuchel did not hesitate to condemn the singing, calling for Chelsea fans to show more respect in such situations. ‘It’s not a moment to give other messages,’ he said.
