Russia-Ukraine: I Have No Answers To Your Questions, Am Not A Politician – Tuchel Fires Back At Pressmen

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has fired at reporters for asking him questions about owner Roman Abramovich and the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

Tuchel while speaking on Tuesday ahead of their FA Cup clash against Luton today, told reporters that he is not a politician and cannot speak on anything about war.

He requested that the journalists present refrain from asking him questions regarding the conflict in Ukraine, describing the situation as “terrible.”

“You must cease and desist; I am not a politician.” I can only repeat myself, and it pains me to do so because I have never been in a war. So even talking about it makes me feel horrible.

“I’m very privileged as I sit here in peace. I do the best I can but you have to stop asking me these questions as I have no answers for you,” he said.

Labour MP Chris Bryant, last week used Parliamentary Privilege to reveal that Abramovich is selling his UK home and another flat.

He also told the House of Commons the Russian billionaire is “terrified of being sanctioned”.
