Chelsea’s new owner Todd Boehly swung the ax after watching his club lose 1-0 to Dinamo Zagreb in Europe.

The brutal sacking comes despite Chelsea having spent £254m on some of Europe’s brightest talent over the summer.

Tuchel was replaced by Graham Potter, who gave up his post at Brighton to fill the vacant managerial post at Stamford Bridge.

And to make matters worse for Tuchel, he could also be booted out of the country due to Brexit rules, reports The Telegraph.

The 49-year-old is believed to only be able to stay for a maximum of 90 days after being released on a post-Brexit Governing Body Endorsement visa.

However, there was no official confirmation from the relevant parties.

Talks are ongoing and Tuchel is said to be “happy and comfortable” living in the UK and is still weighing his options.

He was even spotted smiling in London on Wednesday.


Tuchel stopped and posed for photos with supporters.

A representative for Tuchel told the Telegraph: “We will act in accordance with UK rules and adjust any future plans. Final decisions have not yet been made.”

Tuchel took over Chelsea in January 2021.

The west London club had to make a special application to allow Tuchel and his staff access to the country after Britain left the European Union. Thomas Tuchel could be deported to Chelsea ax before Christmas with Germans in post-Brexit visa limbo
