Thomas Tuchel breaks silence on Chelsea sacking with sincere message to staff, players and fans.

Thomas Tuchel has broken his silence on his shock exit from Chelsea, thanking staff, players and fans for the support he received during his time at Stamford Bridge.

Thomas Tuchel has finally spoken out about being fired as Chelsea's head coach. The 49-year-old manager expressed his sadness at leaving Stamford Bridge, which he considered home "both professionally and personally" for over two years.

Tuchel praised the staff, players, and Blues supporters in a poignant tweet for making him feel "very welcome from the start." His time with the club was very fruitful. It was written in the German's message: "This is one of the most painful statements I have ever had to make — and it is one which I thought I would not need to do for many years.

I can't believe this is the last day of my Chelsea career. When I first walked inside this club, I immediately felt a sense of belonging on a personal and professional level. Tuchel said, "I'd also like to thank the staff, the players, and the fans for making me feel at home right away."

"I will never forget the feeling of accomplishment I had when our team won the Champions League and the Club World Cup. A particular place in my heart will always be reserved for the 19 months I spent with this club; I feel privileged to have been a part of its history.
Chelsea have hired Graham Potter to replace Tuchel on a five-year agreement, and he'll be bringing a few of his assistants from Brighton Hove Albion with him. Queen Elizabeth II's death on Thursday has delayed the former Seagulls manager's Premier League debut with the Blues.

Even though the burial for Her Majesty will be held at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19, it is still unclear whether or not Chelsea will host Jurgen Klopp's team in west London at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, September 18. With hundreds of thousands of fans anticipated to descend upon the nation's capital in the following days, the police force will have their hands full, especially as the weekend of their visit also features Brentford's match against Arsenal.

The summer purchases that Tuchel assisted Boehly in making will have a significant impact on Potter's workload until the January transfer market opens. While Marc Cucurella is the most notable newcomer after his departure from the Amex Stadium for a few months, other players like as Kalidou Koulibaly, Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Raheem Sterling are all expected to play significant roles.
