Thomas Tuchel parts way with Chelsea as head coach

As the new ownership group has been in control of the club for 100 days and as it continues to work hard to move the club forward, the club has issued a statement addressing it in which they indicate that they believe the transition should take place now because it is the proper time.

“As the Club moves fast to appoint a new head coach,” reads a statement from Chelsea, “Chelsea’s coaching staff will take responsibility of the team for training and the preparation of our upcoming matches.”

In the second half of the 2020–21 football season, Tuchel succeeded Frank Lampard as manager of Chelsea. By winning the all–English Champions League final against Manchester City by a score of 1-0, he became just the second manager in the club’s history to experience Champions League glory.

The German coach had been under pressure to produce results ever since Tedd Boehly took over ownership of the team from Roman Abramovich during the end of the previous season. With two losses in their first six games and a 2-2 draw at home against archrival Tottenham Hotspur, the London club had a rocky start to the new Premier League. a game that saw the infamous handshake altercation between Antonio Conte, the manager of Spurs, and Thomas Tuchel.

They were already under fire, but this added to the strain when they broke the Premier League record for the amount of money spent during a transfer window, reaching £271.1 million. Tuchel appeared to be running out of ideas, which added pressure during the post-game interviews. Last night, a threshold was crossed when Chelsea’s match against Dinamo Zagreb from Croatia’s Division 1 league ended in a loss. As a result, the club fired the manager it had hired after his time at Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund.

There are reportedly three candidates for Tuchel’s replacement: Graham Potter, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Brighton.
