Thomas Tuchel Is Asked The Most Stupid Question Ever

Thomas Tuchel was asked the most stupid question ever in the aftermath of Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

Tuchel was quizzed by Sky Sports touchline reporter Patrick Davidson as to whether United looked like a Ralf Rangnick team.


The brief, albeit awkward exchange was cut short by Tuchel responding with a simple: "No."

Rangnick is strongly tipped to be named as the Red Devils' new interim manager, but it is anyone's guess as to why this would be of any concern to Tuchel.

The responses on Twitter sum up this cringeworthy moment, as the reporter is promptly put in his place by the Chelsea boss.


One asked: "What kind of question is that?", alongside an apt photo of a perplexed Roy Keane from a previous appearance on Monday Night Football.


Another tweeted: "That was the stupidest question of the century."


Meanwhile, there was even a call for Davidson to lose his job as @kingofdeedss tweeted: "They need to revoke this reporter's license." A tad harsh, perhaps.

It was a frustrating afternoon for Chelsea, who failed to keep pace with Liverpool and Manchester City over the weekend, as both sides recorded victories over Southampton and West Ham United respectively.

The Blues' lead at the top of the table has now been cut to just one point, but it has still been an impressive start to the season for Tuchel's men.

It was a welcome point for United after what has been a horrendous period at Old Trafford, as the Red Devils face a big fight to secure a top-four finish this season.

They are five points adrift of fourth-place West Ham and a huge 12 points behind Chelsea at the top of the table.

The games come thick and fast, with Michael Carrick currently in line to take charge of the team again for a home clash against Arsenal on Thursday.
