After turbulent days, Champions League winner FC Chelsea paves the first triumph at the Club World Cup. On Friday, it was still unclear whether the German team manager Thomas Tuchel can reward after his positive Corona test for the final on Saturday (5:30 pm / Champions League1) to the team.
“As soon as the first PCR test is negative, there is the opportunity to come to us for Thomas,” said Tuchels Assistant Zsolt Löw, who already in the semifinals against the Saudi-Arab Topklub Al-Hilal (1: 0) at the Side line had stood: “Everyone hopes that Thomas can travel as soon as possible.”
Last Saturday, Chelsea had made the positive test of World Trainer Tuchel just before departure in the United Arab Emirates – the team wants to hide the team.
“It’s different, of course, he’s the leader and if that is missing, it’s usually hard. It’s a great loss,” National player Kai Havertz said, “We are all professional enough to find a way to deal with it.”
“We know how big that is”
The blues, where in Timo Werner and Antonio Rüdiger stand two more German internationals in the squad, could for the first time bring the title at the Club World Championships after they lost in 2012 in the final of the competition. In the final, the Londoner in Abu Dhabi meet the Brazilian Copa-Libertadores winner SE Palmeiras from Sao Paulo.
“We know that Chelsea has never won these trophy,” Hvertz said, “We may only have the chance to win these trophy once in the career. We know how big for the team, the club, the fans and Just everyone is. “
