Marc Cucurella says he’ll ‘never’ cut his hair despite Cristian Romero incident as Chelsea’s new signing reveals his best position… but Thomas Tuchel isn’t using it


Marc Cucurella insists he will never get a haircut despite being at the center of drama at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Tottenham defender Cristian Romero grabbed a handful of the Chelsea man’s hair just before the visitors equalized.

It was a controversial end to the spirited 2-2 draw and left manager Thomas Tuchel furious.

Mike Dean, head of VAR, reviewed the incident but deemed it not worth a red card. As seen, Romero will not face any retrospective action.

When asked how her hair looked, Cucurella replied, “Good, good.”

On the incident itself, Chelsea’s summer signing added: “I haven’t seen the video, but I think it’s pretty clear. Maybe it was a mistake by the referee or the VAR. Sometimes referees make good decisions, sometimes bad decisions.

“It’s not my problem. The players are focused on the game. Maybe we have to work hard not to concede a goal at the last minute in the next games.

When asked if the referee had spoken to him about his decision, Cucurella replied: “Nothing. I think the referee was checking at the red card or not. For me it is clear and I think the video is very clear.

“Right now, I don’t know what happened. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad. It’s football.

When asked if he was going to get a haircut, Cucurella replied, “No, never. It’s my style.”

Chelsea have signed the left-back from Brighton in a deal worth up to £60million, with Man City also making offers for him this summer.

The Blues already have a left back in Ben Chilwell and Cucurella has revealed what he thinks is his best position.

Cucurella has revealed what he thinks is his best position on the pitch

“The three positions on the left side are good for me,” he said. “I think my best position is left back of a back four.

“I have played my whole career in the academies in this position. I have more movement and I stay more comfortable.

“If the gaffer puts me in another position, I run too. I must be good to him.

He may be disappointed though, as Thomas Tuchel’s preference is to play with a back-three and full-backs.

Cucurella was happy to be a Chelsea player though and added: “It’s been a busy summer. Lots of rumors and I think it was a good time for me at a big club. Chelsea are a big club.

Tuchel and Chelsea were quick to pounce on Cucurella as Man City were unwilling to pay the full fee

“I’m very happy to stay here, they’ve been interested in me all summer and I’m happy to stay here.

“It’s a lot of money and a big responsibility for me, but I’m happy with the offer and the interest I have in coming here.

“I will work hard, add to the team and want to win and play well for the club.”
