Thomas Tuchel was axed as Chelsea manager last week, as the new owners decided to sack the German who had already become a hero at the club.

The Chelsea owners had backed Thomas Tuchel in the transfer market and ended up sacking him – a move that has surprised everyone.

According to Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Tuchel was sad and frustrated after he was sacked.

“Everyone knows the relationship that I have with Thomas,” said Aubameyang.

“It’s obviously sad when someone leaves the club and obviously, I only saw him for a few days. But this is football and when you play football you have to adapt quickly and in some moments in the season, this can happen.

“I think he [Tuchel] was a bit frustrated and sad. Obviously, I will try to talk to him as soon as possible.”

Thomas Tuchel released a statement earlier this week to say he was devastated by the decision of the new Chelsea owners.

“This is one of the most difficult statements I have ever had to write – and it is one which I hoped I would not need to do for many years. I am devastated that my time at Chelsea has come to an end.

“This is a club where I felt at home, both professionally and personally. Thank you so much to all the staff, the players and the supporters for making me feel very welcome from the start.

“The pride and joy I felt at helping the team to win the Champions League and the Club World Cup will stay with me forever.

“I am honoured to have been a part of this club’s history and the memories of the last 19 months will always have a special place in my heart.”
