JUST IN: Chelsea Sack Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea FC have sacked head coach, Thomas Tuchel.

Gatekeepers News reports that the club announced their decision to part ways with the German coach in a statement on Wednesday morning.

The statement 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.”

Tuchel’s sack comes less than 24 hours after Chelsea suffered a miserable defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the first 2022/2023 UEFA Champions League match on Tuesday.

The Blues have also been unsteady and inconsistent since the beginning of the 2022/2023 Premier League campaign as they are currently 6th.

The Club further announced that “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.”
