Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali fired Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea’s manager last year after 18 months at Stamford Bridge during which he guided the team to a UEFA Champions League title.
Chelsea Online News:
Thomas Tuchel was fired as Chelsea manager just months after Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital finalized a £4 billion takeover at Stamford Bridge. After a lucrative summer transfer window, the Blues had a dismal start to the season, which led to Tuchel losing his job 18 months after taking over for Frank Lampard.
Chelsea won a UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and their first UEFA Champions League championship since 2012 under the leadership of the German manager. Graham Potter was appointed to succeed Tuchel, but so far, things haven’t gone as planned for the former Brighton manager.
Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali is in a difficult situation as a result of numerous new signings, poor play, and growing fan pressure. Potter has received the support of Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali thus far this season, and they remain adamant that the manager is the best choice to move the team toward their long-term goals.

Tuchel has highlighted Potter’s problem and described the challenging situation Boehly and Eghbali are currently in. The former Chelsea manager remarked, “In my experience at Chelsea, Paris [Saint-Germain], [Borussia] Dortmund, and Mainz, it is about the results,” in an interview with Dr. Vignesh Devraj released on The internet.
“You can overcome one loss, you can overcome a short period of time where results are missing if the players feel you are on the right path. But, it cannot be too long, otherwise nobody trusts the process anymore.”
Chelsea is now 10th in the Premier League standings after only one victory in their last 10 games played in all competitions. If things don’t get better soon between now and May, playing in the Champions League next season appears to be quite doubtful, and the Blues’ ownership may consider reviewing Potter’s employment at the end of the season.
