Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack has described Todd Boehly’s decision to sack Thomas Tuchel last month as ‘incomprehensible’.

Todd Boehly axed Tuchel just 100 days into his reign as Chelsea owner.

Tuchel had won the Champions League with Chelsea just last year, but Boehly paid no attention to it.

Ballack has sent a word of caution to Todd Boehly as he claimed that he’s running Chelsea with an ‘elbow mentality’.

He told German outlet Bild: “I was surprised by the sacking. For me it was incomprehensible when a coach is dismissed so quickly.

“Especially because Tuchel had such a great success like winning the Champions League.

“We have to see if it works in the long term. I believe that you have to approach such a successful and big club carefully.

“Chelsea doesn’t need any upheaval. Boehly is doing it differently now with his elbow mentality.”
