Tuchel doesn't want Aubameyang to wear 'superhero' mask

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could wear a mask against Dinamo Zagreb.

Chelsea summer signing Aubameyang will wear a mask for protection against his injured jaw.

He suffered this injury in an armed robbery at his home back in Barcelona.

Manager Thomas Tuchel was asked whether the former Arsenal captain will hone a ‘superhero mask’ on Tuesday night.

Tuchel joked: “Don’t put any ideas into Auba’s head please, any further ideas.

“I’m pretty sure he has his own ones. When he scores he can celebrate. First of all, he needs to score,” Tuchel added. “He’s very ambitious, very focused. He’s hungry to play for us and prove a point.

“That’s why he’s here, that’s what we felt from the first moment. He’s happily invited to prove a point tomorrow.”

Tuchel further explained whether the Gabon striker would be available for the Champions League fixture.

“Is he ready to start? Of course. He cannot play 90 minutes,” Tuchel added. “It’s on us to take a decision on how we manage the minutes. He needs minutes to get his full fitness and rhythm. It’s on us to find a solution if he comes from the bench or if he starts.”
