Tuchel Reacts To Chelsea Sacking Potter & Nagelsmann Links. Thomas Tuchel will not give Julian Nagelsmann any advice about joining Chelsea now that the club is owned by Todd Boehly-Clearlake Capital.
After one and a half years at Stamford Bridge, the 49-year-old German was fired in September. Graham Potter took his place. However, 206 days later, on Sunday, the Englishman suffered a similar fate after a string of poor results.
As a result, Nagelsmann, who replaced Tuchel at Bayern Munich last month, is now widely regarded as the favourite to take over in west London. “I saw the news [of Potter’s exit] late last night. It’s awful timing as it coincided with my appointment here,” Tuchel said.
“It took me a while to distance myself from Chelsea. I really enjoyed working there and formed friendships for life. But the club has changed a lot, which has made it easier to distance myself, so it didn’t really trigger big emotions in me.
“I could not give advice [to Nagelsmann] because the club has changed.”
