The news that shocked Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel was suddenly dismissed from the manager’s chair on Wednesday, September 7, 2022 ago. This issue now carries the name of the player Cristiano Ronaldo, why?
The Blues who suffered a 0-1 defeat at Dinamo Zagreb’s headquarters made the decision to sack the German manager. With this defeat, Chelsea have lost three times in their first seven matches in 2022-2023. While the three wins that were obtained, Chelsea’s performance was not convincing enough. According to a report stating the reasons behind the decision to sack Tuchel. Reporting from the Si page, Tuchel’s relationship with club owner Todd Boehly has not been harmonious since the transfer market last summer.
“Chelsea FC has now parted ways with head coach Thomas Tuchel,” read a statement on the club’s official website.
“On behalf of everyone at Chelsea FC, the club would like to express its gratitude to Thomas and his entire staff for their efforts so far with the club.” He added
Reported by Metro, Tuchel and Boehly have different views about Cristiano Ronaldo. Boehly wants to make a statement by signing the five-time world player of the year after successfully taking over from Chelsea from Roman Abrahamovic. Ronaldo’s opportunity to move closer to West London had emerged after his agent, Jorge Mendes, met with Boehly. In addition, Chelsea need a striker following the departure of Romelu Lukaku.
However, Thomas Tuchel refused Boehly’s wishes. Tuchel has the opinion that Ronaldo is not suitable for the system of play that he carried at Chelsea. In the end, Tuchel signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona. Not only did Tuchel reject Ronaldo against Chelsea, but every club approached by Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, was quick to oppose him. It looks like Tuchel is the only coach to have been sacked for that. This decision took fans including Tuchel himself by surprise. Tuchel immediately seemed ‘punished’ after inconsistent performances in seven games this season.
