Chelsea News: After the shaky start of the season, Chelsea has decided to part ways with Thomas Tuchel.
He always preferred the 3-5-2 formation in attack, which looked like 5-3-2 defensively.
During his previous season, Abramovic backed him up after winning the prestigious title of the UEFA Champions League.
Chelsea News: Tuchel’s Time at Chelsea
They provided him with a much-needed number 9 by signing Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan in a record-breaking £97.5 million deal. They also signed Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid on a year-long loan deal with a £30 million buy option.
Tuchel also got his wish as he granted selling some of England’s best young talents like Fikayo Tomori to AC Milan, Marc Guehi to Crystal Palace, and Tammy Abraham to AS Roma. One of the most controversial sales was Kurt Zouma to West Ham. Zouma was a regular starter for the Blues. They did not replace them properly.
In this window, New Owners have spent the most in the English Premier League, which is worth around £272 million. They were also active on the deadline by bringing in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barca, and Zakaria from Juventus.
The Club also brought in some big names like Kalidou Koulibaly, Raheem Sterling, and Wesley Fofana. They have signed some young players with a lot of potential like USMNT goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina, and Carney Chukwuemeka from Aston Villa.
Liverpool Legend and Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness criticised heavily Chelsea’s summer spending spree. He also talked about Boehly’s lack of understanding of British Football.
After spending heavily, Boehly’s Chelsea was expecting a drastic change in their game. But that impossible thing did not happen.
The most surprising thing is that Chelsea is currently at 6th on the table, right behind Manchester United. The London blues have lost only two games and had a draw in one match out of six games of this season.
Champions League Shock Defeat
The details and reasons behind Tuchel’s sack have not revealed yet. Last night, they faced an embarrassing 1-0 defeat against a much weaker Croatian side, Dinamo Zagreb.
The news of sacking their Champions League-winning manager shocked most fans. Tuchel started the game in an unusual 4-4-2 formation with Havertz and Aubameyang up front.
The experiment did not go well as he blamed himself by speaking: “It’s on me and on us and at the moment everything is missing.” The german manager also criticised the squad as he spoke about the lack of “hunger and intensity.”
Chelsea News: Is This Sacking a Sudden Decision?
They just confirmed the news from their post on Twitter. The most shocking fact is that they sacked their manager in one week after spending around £272 million to buy his preferred players.
Now, some reports suggest that the new owners of the Blues management have been considering the decision to sack Thomas Tuchel for some time, as have had concerns for a while over Tuchel’s ability. The club is now looking for a long-term appointment to move the club forward. This decision is not based on yesterday’s defeat in the Champions League.
This is a sad moment for World Football, as he is the second manager of the Premier League to face sacking after Scott Parker. Thomas Tuchel gave Chelsea their second Champions League title, and a coach of a such high calibre will not be jobless for a long time.
