Thomas Tuchel shared his thoughts on Mendy’s error that led to a goal for Real Madrid in the opening moments of the second half on Wednesday night. He hopes that it would not affect the Chelsea goalie in the future.
“It’s life as goalkeeper on a high level. It’s a special position in football. You are in the spotlight. When you are so successful like Edou, you are even more in the spotlight.
“He was never fully free of mistakes. We helped him better, sometimes more lucky. Of course, he can solve this situation much better, he knows. It’s a bad timing to do in a match like Real Madrid.
“I hope it does not affect his self-confidence too much. It’s about accepting and living with mistakes, to refocus, stay calm and confident. Now he can prove he is a true champion”
