Andreas Christensen reportedly shocked his Chelsea teammates on the morning of their FA Cup final game against Liverpool by telling his manager, Thomas Tuchel that he couldn’t play the game.
The departing Danish defender, who has agreed to play for Barcelona from next season, would probably have started the match ahead of Trevor Chaloboah if he was available.
However, The Daily Mail Claims he told his manager on the morning of the fixture that he would not be available to play, but he it wasn’t because of an injury.
The report claims his teammates were shocked when he checked out of the team’s hotel that morning and it remains unclear what had happened to him.
In his absence, the Blues played a good game as they held Liverpool to a goalless draw after extra-time before the Reds beat them on penalties.
They have now lost their last three FA Cup finals and their defeat means Liverpool can potentially end this campaign by winning the quadruple.
