Chelsea Has Sacked Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel was appointed as Frank Lampard’s successor in January 2021 and guided Chelsea to their second Champions League crown in May that year.However, Chelsea are sixth in the Premier League after six matches.

And sources have told News247gh that Tuchel and co-owner Todd Boehly’s relationship had become strained over the summer amid disagreements over the club’s transfer policy.

Nevertheless, the announcement on Wednesday morning came as something of a surprise given that Chelsea had spent more than £250 million on nine players including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a 33-year-old striker with whom Tuchel had a previously close working relationship at Borussia Dortmund.

Just minutes after informing Tuchel he had been sacked, Chelsea released a statement that read:

“Chelsea Football Club has today parted company with head coach Thomas Tuchel.”On behalf of everyone at Chelsea FC, the club would like to place on record its gratitude to Thomas and his staff for all their efforts during their time with the club.

Chelsea Has Sacked Thomas Tuchel

“Chelsea’s coaching staff will take charge of the team for training and the preparation of our upcoming matches as the Club moves swiftly to appoint a new head coach.”There will be no further comment until a new head coach appointment is made.”

Chelsea, who travel to Fulham on Saturday lunchtime, have already lost three games this season, all away from home, and were fortunate not to be beaten at Stamford Bridge by West Ham United.

Tensions with Chelsea players.

Sources have claimed there have been issues behind the scenes at Chelsea all summer, which Tuchel has hinted at on occasion.Tuchel made it clear that he did not enjoy the extra responsibility he was given in the transfer window after Boehly and Clearlake handed him more power and a greater say on Chelsea’s business.

He has reiterated his disappointment that former technical and performance advisor Petr Cech left Stamford Bridge following the takeover and revealed on Saturday that he would not be involved in the appointment of a new sporting director.

Sources have also claimed that Tuchel’s relationship with a number of Chelsea’s squad has deteriorated, while his team selections have caused surprise and, at times, frustration among players who felt they have been unfairly left out or played out of position.

That appeared to be evident in Zagreb.Despite those problems and the below-par results and performances, Tuchel’s departure will put some pressure on Boehly and Clearlake, given the 49-year-old’s popularity with supporters following the 2021 Champions League success, just four months after he had replaced Frank Lampard as head coach.

Chelsea’s fans were also impressed with the way in which Tuchel became the club’s spokesman when restrictions were placed on the club, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions imposed on former owner Roman Abramovich.

Just last month, Tuchel claimed there had been preliminary talks over extending his Chelsea contract by saying:

“There are talks. But I think given the situation where we co from, and where we are in the middle of th transfer period, I think it is the very best if focus on my team and on sports and on bei competitive.”My people talk to the owners and take car everything else. You know how glad I am tod here and how much I like it. So it’s a good thing.”But Tuchel has become the first managerial casualty of the new Boehly-Clearlake era,following out of Chelsea ex-chairman Bruce Buck, Marina Granovskaia, Cech and former head of international scouting Scott.

Tuchel had 100 games with Chelsea which he won 62,drew 19 and lost 18 games.
