The blues boss said: “Listen, listen, listen you have to stop, I’m not a politician.

“You have to stop, honestly, I can only repeat it and I feel bad to repeat it because I’ve never experienced war.

“So even to talk about it I feel bad because I’m very privileged – I sit here in peace.

“I do the best I can but you have to stop asking me these questions because I have no answers for you.”

Tuchel delivered an impassioned statement after revealing how Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has affected him.

He made an observation: “You decide also to ask me about war. It’s horrible, of course it’s horrible, there cannot be any other opinion about it and that’s it.

“But why should we be more distracted than you at work? Of course it’s out there and we know there are more important things out there and this will never change.

“This is sports and there are a lot of more important things out there and still there’s a huge distraction going on, we are worried by we try to create an atmosphere to come to work and focus on our work which is our passion.

“We are very grateful and privileged to have it and it’s not that big a problem. But of course I think that everyone in Europe, more or less, has some noise in their head that nobody likes.
