UPDATED : Thomas Tuchel sacked as Chelsea Manager

Chelsea football club has today sacked the club head Coach, Thomas Tuchel, following their 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in their 2022 UEFA champions league group stage open.

The Blues are sitting on the sixth position in the Premier League with 10 points, after securing 3 Points from Saturday 1-2 defeat to WestHam.

A statement released on the Club verified social media pages read, “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.

There will be no further comment until a new head coach appointment is made.”

According to Sky sport, Todd Boehly sacked Tuchel just three months after completing his takeover of the club.

Boehly is still acting as sporting director having moved on director Marina Granovskaia, chairman Bruce Buck and technical and performance advisor Petr Cech this summer in a complete overhaul of the Roman Abramovich era.

Meanwhile, the German International said he was angry at himself for a ‘huge underperformance’ during the Dinamo Zagreb defeat – his final game in charge of the club – and suggested his side are currently lacking hunger and determination.
