- German tactician Thomas Tuchel has been sacked by Chelsea following their 1-0 Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb
- Tuchel supervised just seven games into the current campaign - losing on three occasions, winning three games and drawing once in all competitions
- He won the Champions League, the Super Cup and Club World Cup during his time as boss of Chelsea
Social media went ballistic with mixed emotions following the sack of Thomas Tuchel as head coach of Chelsea.
The German's sack comes off the back of a slow start to the campaign - losing three games in their opening seven games across all competitions, with his last defeat breaking the camel's back.
His early exit is shocking yet normal considering the ruthless nature of the club's top hierarchy, with new owner Todd Boehly continuing with the trusted and established legacy of the club.
Tuchel chalked 60 wins, 24 draws and 16 defeats in 100 games in charge of Chelsea - winning the Champions League, the Super Cup and Club World Cup.
