Apparently, different views and ideas about working with investor Thomas Tuchel cost him his job as Chelsea FC team manager.
So said Todd Boehly, CEO and co-owner of the English football giants.
“Tuchel is obviously extremely talented and someone who had a lot of success at Chelsea,” said the American. “Our vision for the club was to find a manager who really wanted to work with us. »
A group of investors led by Boehly took over the club in May after former owner Roman Abramovich was forced to sell due to sanctions against Russian oligarchs.
“When you take over a business, you have to make sure you align yourself with the people running the business,” Boehly said.
Dismissal of Thomas Tuchel « the good vision »

« It wasn’t a decision that was made because of a single win or loss, » Boehly said. “It was a decision which we believe was the right vision for the club. »
