Champions League not my priority

Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has said the Champions League is no priority for him.

“No. My priority is the next game we play,” stated the German.

“That has never been different and hopefully will never change because it’s exactly what I expect from my players and my teams: that when we wear a Chelsea shirt, we play a Chelsea game and that means we play to win and give 100 per cent of effort and intensity.

“It’s very nice and exciting to play Champions League games in the knockout stages but there is no preference.”
