Tuchel confirms his team CANNOT fly to FA Cup quarter-final at Middlesbrough



The reality of the impact of Chelsea’s sanctions will be in full effect for Saturday with the club unable to fly to Middlesbrough and back for their FA Cup quarter-final. Instead they will have to undertake a 10-hour round-trip by coach consisting of 536 miles from their Cobham training base in Surry to the Riverside Stadium..

The Blues are still reeling from the UK Government’s decision last Thursday due to their owner Roman Abramovich’s close links with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

And those sanctions will hit the first-team at the weekend with limitations put on their abilities to travel to matches.
