Thomas Tuchel Ignores Thibaut Courtois’ Handshake After 1-1 Draw

Tuchel Ignores Courtois' Handshake

Chelsea have one foot in the Champions League final after traveling to the Spanish capital to play Real Madrid on Tuesday evening in a 1-1 draw.

Christian Pulisic’s away goal in the 14th-minute of the match could prove to be decisive, because Los Blancos now have to score at Stamford Bridge if they want to progress to the final.

Thomas Tuchel’s side were the far better team going forward on Tuesday, with Thibaut Courtois in the hosts’ goal thwarting his former team on a number of occasions.

The Belgian pulled off a terrific save early in the first half to prevent Timo Werner scoring from close-range and was excellent throughout the entirety of the match.

However, Tuchel appeared to be in no mood to congratulate the Real Madrid shot-stopper on a fine performance between the posts.

Eagle-eyed Chelsea fans noticed that their manager appeared to ignore Courtois’ invitation for a handshake on the pitch after the game.

Tuchel walked straight past Courtois’ outstretched arm and over to members of his own team.
