Thomas Tuchel mocks referee Martin in Chelsea vs Southampton

Following Chelsea's victory over Southampton, a humorous video of Thomas Tuchel criticizing referee Martin Atkinson went viral.

Tuchel was visibly annoyed when Timo Werner's first-half goal was overturned after Cesar Azpilicueta was adjudged to have been fouled in the build-up.

Mike Dean, a VAR official, chose to move the goal back a few phases of play and advise Atkinson to rule it out. His colleague concurred after reviewing it on the monitor.

Tuchel was out to get Atkinson from that point on. Take a look at this video of the Blues' manager pleading with the referee to have his eyes checked after yet another questionable judgment.

Tuchel was given a yellow card, which he deserved, but it's difficult to disagree with his assessment that the referee had a bad day. Chelsea would have won the game much sooner if it hadn't been for Atkinson and Dean.

Chelsea had won 3-1 and Tuchel is aiming to win the premier league. Like, share, comment, and follow for articles.
