Chelsea owners admit they may have been wrong in sacking Thomas Tuchel

The Chelsea owners have accepted they may have been wrong in sacking Thomas Tuchel as manager, according to the Daily Mail

The club’s new owners were keen to embark on a fresh era as quickly as possible. But they now feel appointing Graham Potter to replace Tuchel was a mistake.

The Blues unceremoniously fired Tuchel last September following the 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League. 

This was a shock decision as the 49-year-old had led them to European glory in 2021. 

The Blues were not doing well in the Premier League when the German was sacked. But it was very early in the season, and they were sitting sixth in the league standings at the time of his sacking. 

Potter later replaced the former Paris Saint-Germain boss in the hot seat, but the move failed spectacularly.

Despite bringing in the likes of Mykhailo Mudryk and Enzo Fernandez in January, the English boss led them to one disappointing result after another. 

The club hierarchy eventually dismissed him last month following a 2-0 loss to Aston Villa, which left them in the bottom half of the table. 

Frank Lampard has been put in temporary charge, but results have further deteriorated under the former midfielder

The Blues have picked up just four points under Lampard from their six league outings. 

Chelsea’s troubles will likely continue with Manchester City, Manchester United and Newcastle United scheduled as their remaining fixtures
