Chelsea set technical director timeframe as ex-Barcelona and Liverpool men on shortlist

2 mins read

Tuchel said following Chelsea’s 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday that he is not involved in the recruitment of a new sporting director. The German conceded that he is enjoying putting all his energy into coaching his team after a gruelling transfer window, in which the West Londoners spent £250million on eight new players. 

“I’m not involved in that, I have to say. I am so, so happy. I had the feeling for one-and-a-half days, I shifted back to 100 per cent being a coach, which I enjoy a lot and where my full energy will go from now on,” Tuchel told journalists. 

“We need that energy going into the team. It’s a very complex situation with sporting directors and which role they have. They are very different in different countries and clubs.

“It’s no secret that I loved to work with Petr [Cech]. The communication and having this kind of legend at Cobham, who took care of not only our building but the academy and the culture of the club, was a pure pleasure for me. It’s a big change not to have him, and we’re still adapting. I am not actively involved in the search or building of a new structure. I’m not so sure it is my job.”
