Boehly Says He Didn’t Sack Tuchel Because He Lost A Game; See His Reason



Todd Boehly, Chelsea Football Club co-owner says a lack of shared vision led to the sacking of Thomas Tuchel

Boehly was speaking at SALT Conference in New York at the same time Graham Potter met the media ahead of his side’s Champions League clash with RB Salzburg.

In that public event, Boehly explained both his respect for Tuchel but why he ultimately opted to sack him 100 days after completing the purchase of the club.

“I think Tuchel is obviously extremely talented,” Boehly began saying at the panel event.

“He is someone who has had great success at Chelsea. Our vision for the club was to find a manager who really wanted to collaborate with us.

“There’s a lot of walls to break down at Chelsea. Before, the first team and the academy didn’t really share data or a lot of information about where the top players were coming from. Our goal is to really bring the first team and academy together.

“The reality of the decision was that we weren’t sure that Thomas saw it the same way that 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 a shared vision of what we wanted for Chelsea Football Club to look like. It wasn’t a decision that was made as a result of a single win or loss. It was a decision about what we thought was the right vision for the club.”
