Tuchel was let go the following day, on Thursday, following Chelsea’s humiliating Champions League loss to Dinamo Zagreb. The performance was just one of several considerations that went into the decision.
We are now learning the real reasons why Tuchel was fired so quickly, and it appears that many things were going on at Stamford Bridge underground.
However, a Sportsmail piece (via Daily Mail) claims that Thomas Tuchel, the recently departed Chelsea manager, was already losing the dressing room before his dismissal. The German manager’s relationship with his players, especially those who played wide, reportedly wasn’t the finest during his final few weeks at Stamford Bridge.
According to reports, many wide players at the west London club made an effort to avoid playing on the same side of the pitch as Tuchel’s coaching booth. Reports claim that the German manager is notorious among his players because of his “constant ranting and complaining” on the sidelines of games.
The Chelsea wingmen were also angered by Tuchel’s tendency to “groan” whenever a player slips up during play.
After being let go from west London, the manager, who won the Champions League in 2021 with the Blues, is currently looking for his next job. Chelsea will try to turn things around as the season goes on, as the team and its supporters are still in shock at their 1-0 continental loss to Dinamo Zagreb.
Graham Potter, the manager of Brighton & Hove Albion, was mentioned when Tuchel was let go, but the Blues have already announced his signing. They will be hoping that the coach, who has success in the Premier League, can improve the team’s Premier League performance.
Chelsea currently sits outside the top four with three victories in six games. However, Stamford Bridge’s wide players should calm down since, according to rumors, the new administration is not expected to complain as regularly as the former manager did.
