Lukaku had in a recent interview said that he wanted to return to Inter Milan because he was not very happy with the situation at Stamford Bridge and Tuchel’s decision to play him in a fringe role.
Following the interview, the Belgian international was omitted from the squad for the game against Liverpool last Sunday.
Speaking on Tuesday during his pre-match press conference, Tuchel said Lukaku has apologized and has returned to the team ahead of their Premier League clash against Tottenham.
Tuchel added that the forward will remain at the club and continue to do his best for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
He said: “Romelu Lukaku apologized and he’s back in the squad.
“For me it was important to understand that it [the interview] was not intentional from Romelu. This is not as big as people want it to be – it’s not small but we can stay calm and accept his apologies.
“Romelu’s very aware of what happened and what he created. He feels the responsibility to clean his mess up. Maybe we’ll have a bit of smell from it, but he can handle it. He’s no other choice – he’s our player”.
