I Sacked Tuchel For One Major Reason – Chelsea Co-owner, Boehly

Todd Boehly, Chelsea co-owner, said he sacked Thomas Tuchel due to the Germans ‘unwillingness to invest into a shared vision..

Together with co owners Behdad Eghbali and Jose E. Feliciano, Boehly made the shocking decision to sack Tuchel following Chelsea’s defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the UEFA Champions League.

The American then selected ex – coach of Brighton Graham Potter to replace Tuchel.

When you take over any company, You need to ensure you’re aligned with the individuals in Tuchel, and the business is apparently very gifted and naturally somebody who had amazing success with Chelsea,” Boehly stated, speaking at the SALT Conference in the United States..

Our objective of the club was to look for a manager who wanted to work with us, a mentor who wanted to work with us..

“There are lots of fences to knock down at Chelsea. The first team and academy didn’t share information in the past, did not share information regarding where the best players have been coming from. Our aim is to gather a team together. All of which has to be a well oiled machine..

The reality of our choice was that we weren’t certain that Thomas saw it exactly the same way we did. Nobody is correct or wrong, we simply did not have a common vision of the future. It wasn’t about Zagreb, it was about the common vision of what we desired Chelsea to be like.

“It wasn’t a choice that was made due to a single win or loss,” he said. It had been a choice that we believed was the best vision for the club..
