Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel sacked after disappointing start to season

Thomas Tuchel has been sacked as Chelsea manager after the club confirmed they have ‘parted company’ with the German after defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

A club statement read: ‘On behalf of everyone at Chelsea FC, the Club would like to place on record its gratitude to Thomas and his staff for all their efforts during their time with the Club. Thomas will rightly have a place in Chelsea’s history after winning the Champions League, the Super Cup and Club World Cup in his time here.

‘As the new ownership group reaches 100 days since taking over the Club, and as it continues its hard work to take the club forward, the new owners believe it is the right time to make this transition.

‘Chelsea’s coaching staff will take charge of the team for training and the preparation of our upcoming matches as the Club moves swiftly to appoint a new head coach.

‘There will be no further comment until a new head coach appointment is made.’

The 1-0 defeat in Croatia on Tuesday was the 49-year-old’s 100th game in charge of the Blues, but the underwhelming performance meant it was his last.

Chelsea have lost two of their first six Premier League games of the season, suffering surprise defeats to Southampton and Leeds United, while they were also held to a draw at home against Tottenham.
