Just one week after Chelsea confirmed the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal, the club decided to let go of Thomas Tuchel.
Tuchel and Aubameyang had worked with each other in the past, and both seem to have a good relationship.
It may be an awkward situation for Aubameyang, although Todd Boehly has tried to convince him of his future at the club despite the sacking of Tuchel.
Meanwhile, former Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has told Aubameyang that he’d be fine as long as he plays well and scores goals.
“I don’t think Aubameyang will regret the move because he’s tried to sign in for a massive club in Chelsea,” Wright-Phillips told Fair Betting Sites.
“Great club, great fans, and he’s back in the Premier League again and he’s playing Champions League football as well. So I don’t think he’ll complain too much.
“I think the thing that they both have to get used to is when the new manager comes in, is he going to allow him to be a maverick or is he going to be strict, which doesn’t seem to work for Aubameyang.
“He seems to like to do what Aubameyang likes to do. But as long as he works hard to the team and he scores you those goals, you got to give him a little bit of a yardage in a way, because it’s hard to change your character.”
