Tuchel hits out at FIFA after Thiago Silva’s call-up to the Brazil squad.
The 37-year old defender has been called by Brazil for the upcoming international fixtures which means he won’t be available to play their next game against Brentford.
Silva will play against Venezuela, Colombia and Uruguay in the next ten days and the last game will be played a day before Chelsea’s clash at Brentford.
Tuchel said: “He will go and then he will play for Brazil and then he will come back on the matchday versus Brentford.
“This is the life of international breaks, this is the situation of international breaks in 2021.
“Like it or not, what can I do? Is it a good solution for us as a club? No. But we cannot hold him back.
“It is impossible if they call him, he needs to go. Otherwise he gets suspended from FIFA.
“There is no choice and it is something we have to live with.”
