Chelsea Football Club sack Thomas Tuchel

By Emmanuel Oladele - Premier League side Chelsea FC have sacked their team manager Thomas Tuchel after a poor start to the 2022/23 season. The sack came after Chelsea 1-0 loss to Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb in the UEFA Champions League Group Stage matchday 1 on Tuesday.

Chelsea under Tuchel this season recorded two defeats, a draw and three win in the premier league, giving them just ten points from six games and are currently 6th on the premier league log. A loss to Dinamo Zagreb in the UEFA Champions League opener in Croatia on Tuesday triggered the sack of the German tactician by Chelsea board.

Thomas Tuchel spent about £278.4M in the transfer market to improve his squad, yet he had a disappointing start to the season.

The 49-year-old joined the Blues in 2021 and had twenty month spell at the club. During his spell at the club, the German won the one UEFA Champions League, Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

The Blues have released an official statement following Tuchel's sack, which reads as follows; "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. Thomas will rightly have a place in Chelsea’s history after winning the Champions League, the Super Cup and Club World Cup in his time here."

"As the new ownership group reaches 100 days since taking over the Club, and as it continues its hard work to take the club forward, the new owners believe it is the right time to make this transition. 

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."

Before joining Chelsea in 2021, Thomas Tuchel has managed, FC Augsburg II, Mainz 05, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.
