Thierry Henry blasts Marc Cucurella after Champions League exit

Marc Cucurella has been ripped apart for his defensive positioning against Real Madrid.

The 24-year-old defender has struggled to track Rodrygo’s run as the Brazilian ran through on goal.

For that, Ben Chilwell was then forced to drag the winger down for which he was sent off.

Cucurella hasn’t had a great time for the Blues and have come under serious fire for his defensive frailties.

To spend that large sum of money with no trophies to your name is really embarrassing for the West London club.

Both Micah Richards and Thierry Henry were baffled by the Spaniard’s positioning against the Los Blancos.

“You see Cucurella, where is he going?” asked Ricards. “He went all the way (from his left-back spot in his own half) to press the Real Madrid centre-half, then Chalobah is left exposed here. Thierry, what should he be doing here?”

Henry responded: “Well, delay. Don’t go. You are never winning that race. I don’t know why he is going there. That’s a double mistake.

“First, Cucurella, where are you going?! At that particular moment, you have to delay. You can’t dive in there.”
