Thomas Tuchel Opens Up About His Dismissal and the Impact of Graham Potter’s Sacking

Former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has recently shared his thoughts on his dismissal from the club and the subsequent appointment and departure of his successor, Graham Potter. In an exclusive interview, Tuchel reveals how the news about Potter’s sacking affected him and his perspective on the massive changes at Chelsea since his departure.

Thomas Tuchel, who was sacked by Chelsea in September 2022[2], expressed his devastation at the time, saying he felt at home at the club[3]. Tuchel’s dismissal came after losing authority over the players, leading to the end of his tenure at the club[4]. Graham Potter was then appointed as the new head coach, agreeing to a five-year deal[9].

However, Potter’s tenure at Chelsea was short-lived, and he was recently sacked by the club. Reflecting on the news of his own dismissal and Potter’s sacking, Tuchel stated, “I saw the news about Potter being sacked last night — it took me a while to process my dismissal. Chelsea has changed massively after that, so it affected me less.”

Since his departure from Chelsea, Tuchel has been linked to several managerial positions, including interest from Tottenham Hotspur[7]. In a surprising turn of events, Bayern Munich announced Thomas Tuchel as their new manager, replacing Julian Nagelsmann[6].

As Tuchel embarks on his new journey at Bayern Munich, Chelsea fans and football enthusiasts alike will undoubtedly be watching closely to see how the club moves forward following the turbulent period marked by managerial changes.
