Romelu Lukaku has apologized to Thomas Tuchel for his controversial interview about his displeasure with Chelsea and is set to return to the club.

Tuchel said Lukaku was determined “to clean the mess up” after being left out of last Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool.

“First of all we were even in the background happy that we took the time that it needed to look calmly on it and talk calmly,” Tuchel said. “He apologised and is back in the squad for [Tuesday’s] training.

“For me the most important thing was to understand and clearly understand and believe that it was not intentional. He did not do this intentionally to create noise in front of such a big game. And it’s the very first time even he has behaved like this.”
