Coach Thomas Tuchel was not surprised and did not show too much emotion when he heard that Chelsea fired coach Graham Potter.
Potter is fired, what does Tuchel say?
Not long after Tuchel was appointed head coach by Bayern Munich, his former team Chelsea also fired Graham Potter. More importantly, it was Potter who succeeded Chelsea after Tuchel lost his job.
Although Tuchel led Chelsea to the Champions League title and had not too bad results at the beginning of the season, Chelsea’s new owners still did not trust the German coach. The apparatus of the new president Todd Boehly wants to get rid of the remnants of the days of presidents Abramovich and Tuchel as a name that has been “purged”.
When asked about Chelsea’s sacking of Graham Potter, coach Tuchel said: “I heard that Coach Potter was sacked through a notification on the phone. The news came right after my debut at Bayern. It was simple. one more head coach position is vacant and that’s all.
It took me a while to settle in after being sacked by Chelsea, because I enjoyed working there. In addition, I have also built a long-term relationship with the club staff. I can’t recommend anything right now because Chelsea has changed a lot from when I worked there
It was a stressful period but Chelsea has changed a lot. It also helps me forget things faster. It’s also why my emotions weren’t affected so much when I heard Potter was fired.”
Currently Potter’s assistant, Bruno Saltor is being appointed by Chelsea as an interim coach. The European press reported that Julain Nagelsmann, who was recently sacked by Bayern, could become the future coach of Chelsea.
