Zsolt Low gives latest update on Tuchel ahead of Club World Cup final

Chelsea face Brazilian side Palmeiras in the final of the FIFA Club World Cup tomorrow and the Blues have been without manager Thomas Tuchel who tested positive for Covid-19 last week.

Assistant coaches Arno Michels and Zsolt Low have been in charge of Chelsea in their last two games against Plymouth and Al Hilal respectively and Low who was in charge of Chelsea in the semi final of the club world cup has delivered an update on the availability of Tuchel tomorrow.

Zsolt Low: “We hope he can come. We have 30 hours to the game. He follows the rules and protocols. Still a lot of time. We hope he can come but if not we are well prepared, we have a lot of meetings.”

Zsolt Low: “We talk about the game, we analyse the game and see what we can do better. We’re absolutely clear what to do better in the second game.”

Zsolt Low: “Thomas will absolutely want to be here. The whole club wants that. We hope he can make it. We have 30 hours. Every test can be negative and with one he can fly and join the group.”

According to latest reports emerging via Nathan Gissing though, Thomas Tuchel is presently flying to Abu Dhabi and this could mean that the manager’s latest tests came out negative.
