Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel did not want to debate David Moyes’ remarks, accusing Édouard Mendy of having faked his injury in order to force the referee to cancel Maxwel Cornet’s goal.
Furious after Maxwel Cornet’s 90th-minute goal against Chelsea was disallowed for a foul on Edouard Mendy, after consultation with Var, West Ham coach David Moyes accused the Senegalese goalkeeper of simulation at the end of the meeting . Asked about it this afternoon in conference ahead of Chelsea’s next Champions League outing against Dinamo Zagreb, Blues coach Thomas Tuchel completely snubbed the question. “I didn’t feel anything. I did not hear the accusations. Mendy is available for tomorrow, he says, before adding.
“I have no comments on that. Also, I’m not going to respond to David [Moyes]. I can understand his frustration, his point of view. And we’ll leave it at that.” The Blues eventually won that encounter 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.
