Tuchel acknowledged that “there are bad feelings” about how the goal was chalked off with the use of VAR.
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel believes that he was frustrated with the decision to disallow a Romelu Lukaku goal for offside during Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.
Chelsea lost to Liverpool in the final of the Carabao Cup. The result was decided in the penalty shootout.
After the start of extra time, Lukaku lashed the ball into the bottom corner after being played through on goal, only for the assistant to flag for offside.
The Blues head acknowledged that “there are bad feelings” about how the goal was chalked off with the use of VAR.
While speaking to Sky Sports, the Chelsea boss said: “Football can be a brilliant game and it was a brilliant game, no worries and no regrets.
“We gave everything and it was a brilliant match of football. The disallowed goal for Romelu is a very close call – there are bad feelings about this call.
“You need a bit of luck, we scored three times, had big chances, they had big chances, It was a fair result all the way to have a draw.”
Tuchel also defended the decision to introduce Kepa Arrizabalaga for the penalty shootout. The Spaniard failed to save any of Liverpool’s 11 spot-kicks.
