Thomas Tuchel SACKED by Chelsea just 100 days into ruthless Todd Boehly’s ownership

Thomas Tuchel has been sacked by following their 1-0 Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.

New owner Todd Boehly has wasted no time in binning the German coach just seven games into the season, and 100 days into his reign since replacing Roman Abramovich.

Chelsea are sixth in the Premier League and have made a miserable start to their Champions League campaign, with Tuchel disposed hours after their humbling 1-0 loss in Croatia, his 100th match in charge.

In a statement Chelsea wrote: ‘On behalf of everyone at Chelsea FC, the Club would like to place on record its gratitude to Thomas and his staff for all their efforts during their time with the Club.

‘Thomas will rightly have a place in Chelsea’s history after winning the Champions League, the Super Cup and Club in his time here.

‘As the new ownership group reaches 100 days since taking over the Club, and as it continues its hard work to take the club forward, the new owners believe it is the right time to make this transition.’

Sportsmail understands Brighton boss Graham Potter is as an early leading contender, while out-of-work Mauricio Pochettino is also under consideration.

Chelsea added that they will move ‘swiftly’ to appoint a new manager and Tuchel’s coaching staff will take charge of the team in the interim.
