“Our vision for the club was to find a manager who really wanted to work with us”

“When you take over a company you have to make sure you are aligned with the people in the company and Tuchel is obviously extremely talented and obviously someone who has had a lot of success with Chelsea. Our vision for the club was to find a manager who really wanted to collaborate with us, a coach who really wanted to collaborate.he said, before concluding.

“The reality of our decision was that we weren’t sure Thomas saw things the same way we did. No one is right or wrong, we just didn’t have a common vision for the future. It wasn’t just because of the match in Zagreb, it was about the shared vision of what we wanted Chelsea to look like. It was not a decision that was made because of a single win or loss. It was a decision that we thought was the right vision for the club. » It is said.
