Breaking News: Chelsea sack manager Thomas Tuchel; Drops wild allegations on him- Check

Chelsea fired manager Thomas Tuchel after a Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday night.

After 20 months as manager of Chelsea, the 49-year-old former Borussia Dortmund and Paris St. Germain departs.

Tuchel’s coaching staff has been placed in interim control by owner Todd Boehly until a replacement is identified.

According to a club statement, the owners think it is “the proper moment” to hire a new head coach.

Chelsea said:

“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.”

Tuchel was appointed on 26 January, 2021, replacing Frank Lampard, and guided the club to their second Champions League title just four months later.

He went on to add the Uefa Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup later that year.
