It’s no longer news that German side, Bayern Munich have appointed former Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel to take charge of the team after the sacking of Julian Nagelsmann.

More Details

The German is yet to get over his recent sacking from the EPL side, but he’s already looking forward to his new adventure with the Bavarians after signing a 2 and half year deal with the German champions.

The German will take charge of his first match when Bayern face his former club and title rivals Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. And speaking before that game, the 49-year-old revealed he was sacked after a meeting lasting just minutes.

“It was a shock. I felt it, strangely, when I drove to the training centre,” he told reporters. “The meeting we had felt unusual, it turned out to be very short. It lasted three to five minutes.” Tuchel was sacked by the Blues following a 1-0 defeat by Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League.

“The decision had been made and, honestly, it was a shock for all of us. I was also not in the mood to talk longer,” he said. “We had a feeling that we were in the right spot at the right time. We felt that we could achieve big things and we wanted to stay longer – it was as simple as that.”

Tuchel won the Champions League with Chelsea in May 2021 – one of three trophies won in 20 months at Stamford Bridge – and was voted World Coach of the Year following that campaign.

But the German departed on new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly’s 100th day in charge and was replaced by Graham Potter. “It still hurts in a way,” said Tuchel. “I’m not able to see these people on a daily basis. I love this job. I have a passion for it.

“We built an extraordinary bond in the circumstances. We started there during Covid, during Brexit – then came the change of ownership. “We were a strong, strong group and it wasn’t in my hands to take this decision. I was no longer part of this group, a group that felt like a family.”

In an act of fate, his replacement, Graham Potter also struggled in his first few months of taking charge, but the Todd Boehly led-board decided to tow the path of caution and gave him time to turn things around, which he has been able to do lately.


Chelsea are prepared to ward off interest in their French midfielder, Ngolo Kante in order to keep him at the club beyond this season when his contract expires with reports of a strong interest from PSG while Barcelona are also monitoring the situation.

Kante has really struggled this season with injuries, reducing him to just two appearances in the EPL but he’s set to make his comeback soon, which is at a crucial stage of the season as the Blues aim to get back into a top four placing while also aiming for the UCL title this season.

The midfielder has always reportedly considered the Blues his priority, proving to be happy living in London still, and while PSG have certainly not given up hope of getting their man, it looks like they’d need to offer him monstrous wages to change his mind.

This is still good news for Chelsea, with Kante a true modern-day great at the club, having racked up 262 appearances to date and won one Premier League and one UCL title, as well as the Footballer of the Year award in 2017. While injuries have clearly plagued him of late and he isn’t getting any younger, he remains an influential figure who will hopefully stay on for a few more years.
