Thomas Tuchel on Todd Boehly: After a few long and dramatic months, the time has finally arrived at Chelsea as the finalization regarding the ownership of the club is set to be completed. Todd Boehly and his consortium have won the race and only the final few things are yet to be looked at by the Raine group and the UK Government before it becomes official. The fans can finally take a deep breath as all the controversies over the ownership at the club put them under immense psychological pressure and the team’s form also crumbled on the pitch.
Everyone expected Chelsea to finish in the top 4 swiftly and at ease but now they are just one point above the fourth-placed Arsenal and despite their glories of this season, the team’s overall season performance is not of the as high standards as everyone expected. Things are looking gloomy for the Blues towards the end of the season and amidst all these, the departure of a few of their star players is set to happen.
Two of their three starting centre backs, Andres Christensen and Antonio Rudiger are set to leave Chelsea with doubts remaining over the future of Marcos Alonso. Reportedly, the club manager Thomas Tuchel wants to build a squad that suits his style and for that he may sell a few more of the current squad players. Thus, he will need the backing of the new owners in the summer transfer window and this may become a game-changer for both the manager and the owners going forward. Their goals need to be aligned and in the best interest of the club to push the club towards more success.
Can Todd Boehly Become ‘The Man’ as per Thomas Tuchel?
When asked about whether or not Tuchel believes in Boehly and his team and their ability to maintain the ‘Chelsea DNA’ of constant winning, he replied, “If he wants my impression I am happy to give it”. Roman Abramovic’s ability to stick with the club through thick and through and lead them to extreme success over the years has set the tone for the club and the supporters along with the manager are hoping to see this continue. Now it’s wait and watch for all!
