Chelsea chief Todd Boehly opens up on Thomas Tuchel sacking with 'shared vision' flaw

2 mins read

Chelsea moved to appoint Graham Potter within 48 hours of Tuchel’s departure and there are certainly suggestions that Boehly had identified the Englishman as a potential successor before he decided to end Tuchel’s time with the club.

And the American mogul did nothing to conceal what his plans were for the club, breaking down in detail how there was a difference in opinion on how the club should move forward under their ownership, suggesting Tuchel was not “aligned” with their thinking.

“You have to make sure you are aligned with the people in the business, and Tuchel is obviously extremely talented and obviously someone who had great success with Chelsea,” he added.

“Our vision for the club was finding a manager who really wanted to collar with us and I think there’s a lot of walls to break down at Chelsea. Before the first team and the academy, they didn’t have the data or information about where those top players were coming from.”
