Chelsea boss Tuchel holding in laughs during translation in press conference

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was left holding back the laughs after being translated in his press conference.

It came as the Blues out one foot in the semi-finals of the Champions League with a sturdy performance against Porto.

Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell gave them two vital away goals in a 2-0 win in Sevilla.

After their 5-2 thrashing at the hands of West Brom at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea dispelled any worries over a lack of mentality.

Though they did so against a hearty display from Porto, who regularly tested the visitors' defence with Edouard Mendy proving pivotal to keeping a clean sheet.

Nevertheless, Tuchel will be over the moon with the result – which could set up a semi-final clash against either Real Madrid or Liverpool.

And the German was in a mischievous mood in his press conference when talking to HTV.

As they translated what he said into Portuguese, Tuchel looked bemused at times and could not contain a giggle.

At the end, something particularly jerks him and he appears bemused at the interpreter before turning to the camera and gives a cockeyed look.

As for the result, Tuchel was over the moon with Mount's performance after admitting the England midfielder is a key player at Stamford Bridge.

"The finish was clinical and excellent from Mason," said the Chelsea boss.

"He has the quality to do this and to do it in a quarter-final is a big step for him and a big help for the team.

"He is a very important player for our squad at a young age.

"The first goal was very important for us.

"It came in a moment after which we had suffered a lot – the team was too tense.

"We lacked the freedom. Our game was a bit static."
