Tuchel explains why fought with Conte after 2-2 draw with Tottenham

Thomas Tuchel has explained why he clashed with Tottenham manager, Antonio Conte after a 2-2 draw on Sunday, Newspremises reports.

The two men almost came to blows after Emile Hojbjerg equalized for Spurs, cancelling out Kalidou Koulibaly’s opener.

After the game, Tuchel held onto Conte’s hand firmly and muttered swear words, with both managers needing to be separated.

Tuchel has now claimed he wanted the Italian to look into his eyes as they shook hands.

“When you shake hands I thought we look into each other’s eyes but we had a different opinion so it was emotional.

“He was happy when they equalised and it got a bit heated but nothing big. We both got a red card? It wasn’t necessary. But a lot of things were not necessary. Another poor decision from the referee today.

“It’s emotional. It’s the Premier League, it’s the game. You love it, no? We love it. We are emotional coaches,” Tuchel said.
