Tammy Abraham’s girlfriend slams Chelsea manager for snubbing striker in FA Cup final

Tammy Abraham’s girlfriend slams Chelsea manager for snubbing striker in FA Cup final

Leah Monroe, the girlfriend of Chelsea forward, Tammy Abraham, has criticised Thomas Tuchel after for leaving out his top goal scorer in the 20-man squad that lost against Leicester in the FA Cup final .

The England international has not featured much under the German tactician since he was appointed in January, casting doubt over his long-term future.

An embittered Monroe reacted  that she could not believe Tuchel's decision to exclude her boyfriend from the final selection.

She took to her personal Instagram account to vent her frustration.

"How on earth do you make the decision to leave your top goal scorer out of the squad for a final?

"The same person who even scored the goals to actually qualify for this competition?

"It's not making any sense whatsoever."

The 23-year-old is Chelsea's joint-leading scorer in all competitions this season with 12, despite his lack of game time under Tuchel.

He is also the joint-leading scorer in the FA Cup with four goals with Leicester City's Kelechi Iheanacho.

The UK Sun, however, reported that Monroe deleted the post after Chelsea went on to lose the final 1-0 to Leicester thanks to a stunning strike from Youri Tielemans.

Tuchel later justified his decision to leave Abraham out, telling Stadium Astro: "It's just hard decisions on a matchday when you can only nominate 18 players."

The Chelsea manager also left the player out of their FA Cup semi-final win against Manchester City last month and he is said to be concerned about his Stamford Bridge future.

The gaffer stated: "Everybody is concerned when they're not in the squad but it's never an easy decision for me to take.

"I have a lot of sympathy for him and I can understand that he is worried and sad and maybe angry with me when I make these decisions."

The young forward has scored 90 goals in 209 professional appearances, including 15 in the Premier League under ex-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard last season.
