The Chelsea boss admitted Abraham was more focused on returning to the starting Chelsea lineup than his situation in England.
Abraham suffered ankle injuries for several weeks, but was back in full training on Friday and could play in Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final match with Sheffield United.
Abraham was left out of England’s last squad this week, but Tuchel believes the 23-year-old needs to focus on issues at Chelsea first.
Asked about an assessment of Abraham’s situation in England, Tuchel said: “We haven’t talked about it, I actually feel him a little more concerned about his role on our team.
“I think he clearly knows that a role in our team can improve his chances of playing a role in the England national team.
“We haven’t talked about it but it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s in his head. It is quite normal at this level that the players have their own interests, and one of the interests is to have a role in their team but also their campaign.
“Those are two goals for Tammy, but in our discussions now, it’s just about the next steps here, how to increase her involvement here.
“But at the same time, when you give confidence to the attackers who are really on the pitch, you can’t change all the time so it’s not easy.
“I accept that it is not too easy, but it is not too difficult either, and I hope he is not too hard on himself or that he thinks too much about it,” if my situation is like this now, what are the consequences? ”
“He needs to refocus on his situation and that’s how I feel. We talked about the real situation here at the club and from here he has the chance to find his way back every day. ”
