'A Terrible Decision' - Thomas Tuchel Makes Anthony Taylor Dig After Manchester United Clash

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel made a dig at referee Anthony Taylor following his side's clash against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

In the closing minutes of the game, Tuchel was awarded a yellow card from the sidelines by Taylor for his reaction to a decision made against his team.

The call came after Manchester United were awarded a corner when Cristiano Ronaldo had clearly been offside in the build-up play.


Following the fixture, Tuchel addressed the decision that had been made against him, throwing shade on Anthony Taylor.

"I'm the guy who gets a yellow card but everybody tells me that we go for clear offside and it's a clear offside," he said, as quoted by

"And then we have to defend a dangerous corner and the second ball from the set-piece and you can lose games like this.

"It's a terrible decision, of course, but hey."
