THOMAS TUCHEL is tasked with saving Chelsea’s season on Sunday but his job is as secure as houses.
The last chance for a trophy this year is up an FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace.
Gallant exit from the Champions League on Tuesday at Real Madrid doesn’t matter, now the dust has settled over a brilliant but ultimately failed performance.
European competition is on its way back to UEFA headquarters, with Chelsea third in the Premier League having lost the Carabao Cup final to Liverpool just six weeks ago.
Under normal circumstances ChelseaThe manager of would be under immense pressure to deliver cutlery or face sacking.
Regardless of charisma, character or previous successes, the claims are below outgoing owner Roman Abramovich were relentless.
Victorious Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti can vouch for being axed less than a year after winning the double.
Tuchel is undoubtedly the best thing that has happened to Chelsea in years.
But if Abramovich were still in full control, awkward questions would be asked before this important game kicked off.
The fact that Stamford Bridge is currently in a power vacuum is a huge relief for Tuchel.
With no direct owner of the club, while Russian Abramovich ducks from country to country and watches his financial empire collapse, there is no one around to order the cull.
The once-busy beheading room at Stamford Bridge is eerily quiet and Tuchel has arguably the safest job in English football.
Four hopeful consortia have submitted their final bids to buy the now-former European champions and are awaiting the outcome this week.
Of course, it would be absurd a massive mistake to sack Tuchel or even allow negative PR to smolder around the man who has guided Chelsea through the most trying weeks since its inception 117 years ago.
The four groups, who are hoping to seize control of one of the most powerful clubs in European football, are also brimming with big plans for the future and wish the fans all the best.
Tuchel is by far the best man to lead Chelsea into a new era under new ownership.
Tuchel’s honesty, dedication and instinctive intelligence have transformed Chelsea since taking over in January last year. But so did his predecessor Frank Lampard‘s.
It was Lampard who propelled Chelsea to the knockout stages of last season’s Champions League from where Tuchel picked up and won them.
After that, the German spent £97million on Romelu Lukaku in the summer to have scored 12 goals so far – three of them against lower-division opponents in the FA Cup.
Chelsea are third, 12 points off the top and seven games to go and it looks like it will be at least two years before the title is up for grabs again.
That’s a trophy they haven’t won since 2017 – four years ago and three managers.
Tuchel is by far the best man to lead Chelsea into a new era under new ownership when the turmoil of recent weeks finally eases.
