What Thomas Tuchel did during Liverpool’s penalty shootout victory came back to harm him immediately.
During Liverpool’s FA Cup final win against Chelsea at Wembley, Thomas Tuchel couldn’t hide his emotions.
The Chelsea manager could only watch as his team suffered yet another setback. Tuchel’s side were defeated in an unexpected defeat, much like they were in the previous Carabao Cup.
After both Cesar Azpilicueta and Sadio Mane missed, the spot-kicks came to an end. In any case, once Edouard Mendy saved Mane’s efforts, Tuchel couldn’t pass up the opportunity to fall to his knees in gratitude.
However, after Mason Mount’s effort was saved by Alisson Becker, Konstantinos Tsimikas was handed the crucial opportunity to win the cup for the Reds, and he calmly switched over from 12-yards out.
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson remarked after the game, “It’s incredible, we had such a good execution.”
“It’s a shame we didn’t score. It was a serious battle, we kept a clean sheet, and then the young men were unbelievable in scoring the goals. All I had to do was save the last one.
“I am ecstatic. Myself and Mendy both made incredible recoveries. I could not have completed the recovery without the help of the group. They perform admirably and make my life easier.
“It was amazing hello?” he said before adding. All goalkeeper mentors help me make decisions. They are excellent players, Chelsea performed admirably overall, but we deserved to win. I just make the save since we had a chance to win.
“This gives us more confidence in the Premier League and, more importantly, the Champions League.” It’s a fantastic moment right now, and we just have to enjoy it.”
