What Thomas Tuchel told Porto boss and Pepe to rile them up so bad

Chelsea knocked Porto out of the Champions League quarter finals last night winning the tie 2-1 on aggregate.

But it appeared the Porto players and boss did not take too well to being knocked out of the competition, despite trying their hardest to end Christian Pulisic’s career by continuously fouling him and a number of other Chelsea players all game.

The Porto head coach was also booked for mouthing off at the officials in BOTH matches.

So it comes as no surprise to hear that Tuchel wasn’t overly keen to apparently ‘fist bump’ some of the players and staff after the game.

According to The Daily Mail, citing information from Record, Thomas Tuchel telling Sergio Conceicao to ‘f*** off’ was the catalyst for the ugly scenes at full-time.

A Chelsea spokesperson today said: ‘This allegation is complete nonsense.’

Conceicao has accused Tuchel of telling him to ‘f*** off’ in the aftermath of the game, and it also appeared to anger Pepe and some other players.

Oh well… !
