Chelsea football Club has parted ways with their manager Thomas Tuchel.
A poor Premier League start has seen Chelsea lose two out of their opening six matches and struggled against London rivals West Ham on Saturday, before being embarrassed in Croatia in their group stage opener on Tuesday.
And it proved to be the decisive result for American owner Boehly who has ruthlessly relieved Tuchel of his duties after less than two years in charge.
Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard as Chelsea manager in the second half of the 2020/21 football season and at the end of it, became only the second manager in the history of the club to taste Champions League glory, beating Manchester City 1-0 in the all English final.
On their official Instagram page announced the current development.

“Chelsea Football Club has today parted company with Head Coach Thomas Tuchel.
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 World Cup 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.
Chelsea’s coaching staff will take charge of the team for training and the preparation of our upcoming matches as the Club moves swiftly to appoint a new head coach.
There will be no further comment until a new head coach appointment is made.”
