In a dramatic and shocking statement, Chelsea announced the sack of Thomas Tuchel to the dismay of pundits and fans alike who did not see it coming.

Appointed as Chelsea manager in 2021, Thomas Tuchel led the Blues to their second Champions League trophy after a few months in charge as the new manager.

He went on to reach the FA Cup and EFL Cup finals, qualified the team for the 2022 Champions League, and also took them to the quarter-finals before a narrow loss to Real Madrid, who went on to win the title.

Despite falling by three goals at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea went to Santiago Bernabeu and won 3-1 but had to exit the tournament on aggregate score.

Thomas Tuchel obviously made some gains with the Blues under his watch in his debut season in the Premier League.

However, the 2022/23 Premier League season turned into his worst nightmare following a series of poor and unconvincing results.

Meanwhile, a new ambitious owner, Todd Boehly, with a wild and broad vision for his new club, had overrun top and high-spending Premier League clubs to bring fresh legs into the team.

Todd Boehly dolled out a whooping £273.5m to sign new players, but the result was not forthcoming. Newly signed defenders alone gulped over £160m.

The likes of Kalidou Coulibaly from Napoli, Wesley Fofana from Leicester City, and Marc Cucurella from Brighton topped the list of high-profile defenders and other stars joining the team.

Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel struggled in the 2022/23 Premier League season. Tuchel won his first game against Everton and secured a 2-2 draw against a hard-fighting Tottenham in a heated derby.

Thomas Tuchel secured another crucial win over Leicester City despite being reduced to 10 men, but defeats against Southampton and Brighton made things difficult for the 49-year-old.

Tuchel also faced another difficulty in the season. The only clean sheet kept by the Blues was in the opening game against Everton.

They conceded goals in all the subsequent matches, including a 3-0 thrashing by the Seagulls led by the then manager Graham Potter, who is now Thomas Tuchel’s successor.

This run of poor defending was a stir after the amount expended by the club in the just concluded transfer window.

Apparently, the last straw that broke the camel’s back was the Champions League defeat to Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb. Just hours after suffering the loss, Todd Boehly announced the sack of Thomas Tuchel.

Former Brighton manager, Graham Potter, was appointed the next manager. Thomas Tuchel broke his silence after the sack, admitting that he was devastated.

Todd Boehly has handed a handsome compensation package to Thomas Tuchel after his sack, but the former PSG and Borussia manager is more likely to face some dire consequences beyond the reach of football finance after the sack.

According to reports, the decision to relieve Tuchel of his job as Chelsea manager will put him at risk of facing deportation.
