‘Off-the-field reasons’ allegedly led to Thomas Tuchel sacking at Chelsea

An alleged insight into why Thomas Tuchel was sacked by Chelsea has been provided on Friday.


Thomas Tuchel was sacked by Chelsea on September 9, 2022, just over a year after the German led the Blues to Champions League glory.

And now, it has allegedly been revealed why he was sacked. Thomas Tuchel ‘was sacked by Chelsea for off-field reasons and because the players lost respect for him’ - according to an email from his ex-wife.

German newspaper Bild, via the Daily Mail, report that Sissi, a former journalist for Suddeutsche Zeitung, received a call from England in which she was given the alleged reasons for his Chelsea sacking in September last year.

She was allegedly told the Chelsea players had lost respect for the manager who led them to Champions League success in 2021. Mysterious ‘off-field reasons’ were also cited.

The reasons were put down in an email and Tuchel wanted to use a temporary injunction to prevent Sissi disclosing the content of the message, Bild said.

Bild add they were unable to publish the wording of some of the claims in the email for legal reasons and neither Tuchel, who didn’t attend the hearing, or his ex-wife, who did, wished to comment.

Graham Potter has since taken over in west London and has struggled to get the Blues firing, though they have won their last two outings.
