Chelsea’s Kai Havertz speaks out on Thomas Tuchel sacking

Kai Havertz has had his say on Thomas Tuchel being sacked by Chelsea.

Chelsea parted ways with Thomas Tuchel earlier this month. The news came less than 24 hours after the west Londoners lost 1-0 to Dinamo Zagreb in a Champions League clash.

Tuchel won the Champions League during the first season at Chelsea, but had since failed to replicate that sort of form. Chelsea were sat 6th in the Premier League when Tuchel was sacked and finished 2021/22 in third.

There were also reports that Tuchel was proving difficult to work with and that he had alienated some of the Chelsea players.

Now though, one Chelsea player has spoken out on the German’s sacking.

That man is Kai Havertz, who was a key figure under his former boss and also scored the goal that helped win Chelsea the Champions League final during Tuchel’s first season.

Havertz told Kicker on Tuchel’s dismissal: “Me too [it surprised me]. Especially when you consider how we’ve played in the past year and a half and what we’ve won.

“Our new coach has made a very good impression, we have a great squad. I think we are in for a good time.”
