Nigerian fans react to the sacking of Thomas Tuchel by Chelsea
Nigerian football fans took to social media on Wednesday to lament the shock sacking of Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel.
This came just 24 hours after the Blues’ shock 1-0 defeat in their opening Champions League game on Tuesday.
This is according to a statement released by the club on its website.
The Premier League club said Chelsea’s coaching staff would be in charge of the team for training and preparation for the upcoming matches.
“As the new ownership group continues its hard work to take the club forward 100 days after taking over, the new owners believe it is the right time to make this change,” it said.
“The Chelsea FC coaching staff will be in charge of the team in training and preparation for the upcoming matches, while the club will expeditiously appoint a new head coach,” the statement said.
Some Nigerian football fans reacted to the development by taking to microblogging site Twitter to share their views on the future of the Premier League club.
Sports journalist @PoojaMedia wrote: “Chelsea’s new owners sacked Thomas Tuchel after Champions League defeat. Brutal or maybe they never liked his face and the results helped them make the decision quickly.
“Tuchel got the dismissal letter by post on the bus on the way to the airport. From Croatia to Germany. Boehly no nice 🤣”
Another sports journalist, granny Akatugba, @omaakatugba wrote: “Just landed in Rome and the first thing I see is Chelsea sacking Tuchel. Bloody hell. Football is a jungle.”
@4EyedLiwa wrote: “All in all, the Thomas Tuchel era at Chelsea has been a successful one with a win rate of over 60% in 100 games.”
@_AsiwajuLerry wrote: “Dear Chelsea, the way you sack Thomas Tuchel is the same way you should sack Kai Havertz from my club. They both lived off the Champions League tax and you can’t sack one and leave the other.
@Letter_to_Jack said: the new manager might not be convinced by Tuchel’s ideology and therefore doesn’t like some of the new players he bought. This won’t end well for Chelsea.

@UtdEllis wrote, “The way Tuchel handled the Abramovic situation was absolutely incredible. There was more pressure on Chelsea as a football club at the time and they still got out of it well thanks to him, and then they sack him for a couple of bad results. Graham Potter is a great manager but he’s not ready to run a club the size of Chelsea.”
@gyaigyimii said: “😂Tuchel keeps repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results.”
