Chelsea Head coach Thomas Tuchel has been fired, six matches into the Premier League season. Chelsea are expected to approach Brighton later on Wednesday for permission to speak to Graham Potter and are also keen to speak to Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane, who are both out of work.
Tuchel was axed just three months after completing his takeover of the club. Todd Boehly is still acting as sporting director. This summer, in a complete overhaul of the Roman Abramovich era, Boehly moved director Marina Granovskaia, chairman Bruce Buck and technical and performance advisor Petr Cech.
By bringing in Wesley Fofana, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucarella and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – a record £273m to revamp Tuchel’s squad this Premier League season.
Chelsea have been considering this decision for some time and it is not a knee-jerk response to Tuesday’s Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.
The new ownership has had concerns for some time and has been looking at other options, Chelsea sit sixth in the Premier League with 10 points.
