‘I’d Speak To Premier League’: Tuchel Reveals What He Will Do After Refusal To Postpone Wolves Clash

“I gave my opinion, the club gave its opinion, we talk a lot about the safety and protecting the players, not so sure we did this today. On we go,” Thomas Tuchel told Sky Sports after the Wolves game.

“If we have tomorrow and the next test and the next positive I would like to speak to the Premier League about what they expect.

“If they make us play against Brentford shall we not arrive or not train? What should we do?

“Everyone is allowed to have an opinion. We had an opinion and the Premier League had an opinion. We agree to disagree.”
