- Thomas Tuchel was sacked from Chelsea last September and replaced by Graham Potter
- The German enjoyed a successful time on the on the touchline but a turbulent one off the pitch
- He divorced his wife of 13 years Sissi Tuchel close to the end of his reign in England
Thomas Tuchel has endured a difficult past two years in his personal life, which were only masked by the success achieved with Chelsea on the pitch, but now he's no longer on the job, and attention is turning to the issues.
The German led Chelsea to six finals. He won three, including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup, but lost two FA Cups and one Carabao Cup.
He also led Chelsea through difficult moments when the former owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned, which led to the eventual sale of the club. He endeared himself more to fans for his maturity and leadership.
Tuchel spotted with new girlfriend
As reported by Sports Illustrated, the German manager finalised divorce from his wife of 13 years, Sissi Tuchel, with whom he had two kids last April, though the process had gone on secretly for months.

Tuchel began dating Brazilian businesswoman Natalie Max, 35, last year shortly after his divorce was finalised. As reported by Daily Star, Chelsea players made it a discussion that their manager was dating a younger woman.
Sun UK reports that Tuchel, who has been globe-throttling since he was sacked, was spotted with Natalie outside the Brenner Grill restaurant in Maximilianstrasse, Germany.
As reported by 90min, the former PSG manager was forced to leave the UK after his visa expired last December and subsequent applications were not approved.
Chelsea website put up Tuchel's picture
Thomas Tuchel, without a doubt, was loved by the Chelsea fans and certainly retains a high level of respect among some club staff, including the social media team.
As Sports Brief reported, the Chelsea website mistakenly uploaded his picture as the thumbnail of Graham Potter's press conference ahead of the 0-0 draw with Liverpool.
Poor results under Potter have made fans rue how much of a mistake it was for Todd Boehly to part ways with the German tactician who led the club to its second Champions League trophy.
