Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has supported the club in ‘making the right decisions’ following their involvement in the European Super League.
The Blues, along with the rest of the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ and leading clubs from Spain and Italy, were announced as founders of the breakaway on Sunday evening.
Tuchel declined to comment on the proposals in detail, saying it is “too early to judge” whether the Super League is a good idea.

Tuchel said, “I trust my club will make the right decisions. It’s too early to judge everything and it’s not my share. My badge says that everyone has to play their part and my role is a coach. ‘
Tuchel added that he only found out about Chelsea’s involvement on Sunday.
While many high profile football figures have expressed disappointment with the Super League, Tuchel admits he doesn’t know enough about the plans yet.
He said, ‘There are way too many opinions … let’s face it, I’m an employee of this club. I can understand your curiosity, there are emotional responses, but I honestly don’t know enough. ‘
The Chelsea manager stressed that he does not know enough about the proposed Super League

Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool will join Chelsea in the Super League, which, if it continues, kicks off in August.
They will be joined by AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid.
The teams, which would be split into two groups of ten, will each receive £ 3.03 billion.
Tuchel was appointed Chelsea manager in January and has won 13 of his 19 games so far.
Chelsea defeated Manchester City on Saturday to reach the FA Cup final, where they will compete against Leicester. They are also still fighting for the glory of the Champions League and will face Real Madrid in the semi-final.
