Panic for Thomas Tuchel As Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich Set to Take Drastic Decision Over Poor Results
- Thomas Tuchel is gradually under pressure and there are concerns at Stamford Bridge over the future of the manager
- Chelsea writer Adam Newson has suggested that club owner Roman Abramovich will not treat the German tactician differently
- The Blues have been far from impressive in recent times as they have dropped to the third position on the Premier League standings
Following Chelsea’s recent poor string of results in the English Premier League, reports have it that club owner Roman Abramovich would not treat Thomas Tuchel differently.
The Russian businessman frowns at poor results having hired and fired some of the best managers in the world of football.
It will be exactly a year on January 26 when Tuchel took over at the London club and the German tactician guided the Blues to the Champions League as well as Super League.
Chelsea writer Adam Newson told Football.London that the tactician won't be treated differently by Roman Abramovich.
"Why should he be any different. As early as his first press conference, he made light of the fact that it was only an 18-month contract. Because it didn’t really matter, if he didn’t succeed, he would be sacked.
“It’s a very good approach, but I would say again you speak to people around the club, and Tuchel doesn’t treat this like a job where it’s all focused on winning now. He has done certain things.
“In terms of younger players and whatnot. He has made an effort to speak to younger players, talk to potential signings at a younger level and promote the club to them.
“Say, even if I’m not here, it’s still a great club to be at yourself. Tuchel gets Chelsea. He’s very happy and content. I think you do believe everything that he says. He will be happy to stay here."
Tuchel speaks on Chelsea’s poor form
Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel said his Chelsea side looked “tired” in the frustrating 1-1 draw against Brighton and Hove Albion on Tuesday, January 18.
The Blues might have taken a point from the Amex Stadium, but their performance was in many ways underwhelming as they blew their first-half lead when Adam Webster scored a free header in the second period.
With their title hopes fast fading away, the draw against Brighton brought to perspective a painful statistic for the Stamford Bridge landlords – that they are winless in their last four league games.
