Tuchel “Honoured” to Have Been Part of Chelsea Legacy

Former Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel, has revealed in a heartfelt Tweet that he is “devastated” his time with the club has come to an end.

The 49-year-old German coach was unexpectedly released from his position less than 24 hours after the club’s 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb last week Tuesday, 6 September. Two days later, Graham Potter was already appointed as Chelsea’s new coach on a five-year contract.

Tuchel broke his silence on Sunday, 11 September, writing: “This is one of the most difficult statements I have ever had to write – and it is one which I hoped I would not need to do for many years. I am devastated that my time at Chelsea has come to an end.”

Tuchel continued, “This is a club where I felt at home, both professionally and personally”, before adding “I am honoured to have been a part of this club’s history and the memories of the last 19 months will always have a special place in my heart.”

Potter also released an apology letter for leaving his former club, Brighton & Hove Albion, on Sunday via the club’s official site, saying: “I felt I had to grasp a new opportunity.”
