Todd Boehly Finally Reveals Main Reason He Sacked Thomas Tuchel

The new ownership made a bold decision when they decided to part ways with Tuchel, naming former Brighton manager, Graham Potter as his successor.

Chelsea new owners have made known the main reason they thought it wise to sack former Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel.

It’s been days since Thomas Tuchel was shown the exit and Graham Potter is yet to lead Blues to his first game in charge.

The death of Queen Elizabeth has seen Chelsea’s game against Fulham over last weekend postponed but the Blues will take on their UEFA Champions League opponents tonight.

Following the German’s sack, Todd Boehly has in an interview shared the main reason the new ownership decided to sack Tuchel.

“Tuchel is extremely talented and had great success,” Todd Boehly said. “Our vision for the club was finding a manager that wanted to collaborate with us, we weren’t sure Thomas saw our vision the same way we saw it, we didn’t have a shared vision.

“When you take over any business, you have to make sure you’re aligned with the people who are operating the business. Tuchel is obviously extremely talented and someone who had great success at Chelsea.

“Our vision for the club was finding a manager who really wanted to collaborate with us, a coach who really wanted to collaborate. There are a lot of walls to break down at Chelsea.

“Before, the first team and academy didn’t really share data, didn’t share information about where the top players were coming from. Our goal is to bring a team together, all of that needs to be a well-oiled machine.

“The reality of our decision was that we weren’t sure that Thomas saw it the same way we saw it. No one is right or wrong, we just didn’t have a shared vision for the future.

“It wasn’t about Zagreb, it was about the shared vision for what we wanted Chelsea to look like. It wasn’t a decision that was made because of a single win or loss. It was a decision that we thought was the right vision for the club.
