Every manager will be wishing to be Thomas Tuchel at the moment.

The Blues boss is directly in charge of transfers, and is working hand in hand with new owner Todd Boehly.

With Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech vacating their roles, Tuchel’s link with the owners is direct.

According to Tuchel, working with the new owners is intense so much that he wants to focus on his coaching job.

“The relationship [with the owners] is very intense, very close, which it has to be – because without Petr and without Marina, it’s a big change in the daily structure and communication,” Tuchel told the BBC.

“I’m a lot more involved. I have to step up in terms of responsibility. I think in the long term or even when the close of the pre-season comes, I will want to be more on the coaching role again.

“But right now it’s important to improve our team, to bring players in to stay competitive because we want to compete for a minimum of top four.

“Given the fact that Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United act on the transfer market for weeks and months, we need to be smart, we need to be fast and we need to find solutions. It’s my job to help.”

Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel has admitted that he’s pleased with the signing of Raheem Sterling.

“For me, he is a huge player, with a huge influence in the last years in English football and he’s in a perfect age to now take responsibility around young players that we have and be an example.

“Getting what he delivered for years given his age, his hunger for responsibility, and his style of play and his amount of intensity is outstanding.

“It is the benchmark in the Premier League and is exactly what we need.”
