EPL: Chelsea owner, Abramovich takes side in Tuchel, Lukaku feud

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has the full support of the club’s owner, Roman Abramovich on whatever decision he decides to take against Romelu Lukaku over the striker’s controversial interview.

Tuchel’s first disciplinary action against Lukaku was to drop him completely from the squad that played out a 2-2 draw against Liverpool on Sunday.

In the interview with Sky Sport Italia, the Belgium international said he wanted to return to Inter Milan because he was no longer happy at Chelsea in less than six months after returning to Stamford Bridge.

According to The Sun, Abramovich, who has often backed his players over his managers, fully supports Tuchel’s decision to punish Lukaku.

Abramovich spent a club-record £97.5m to sign Lukaku from Inter Milan last summer.

However, Tuchel and his top striker are said to have held clear-the-air talks after Chelsea’s game against Liverpool and the German could recall the 28-year-old for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg against London rivals Tottenham.
