Chelsea have fired coach Thomas Tuchel after Tuesday night’s Champions League defeat by Dinamo Zagreb.
The 49-year-old former Borussia Dortmund and Paris St-Germain boss leaves Stamford Bridge after 20 months.
Owner Todd Boehly has hired Tuchel’s coaching staff on a temporary basis until a replacement is found.
A statement from the club said the owners believe it is “the right time” to hire a new head coach.
“As the new ownership group marks 100 days since taking over the club and continues their hard work to move the club forward, the new owners believe it is the right time for this transition,” the statement read.
“On behalf of everyone at Chelsea FC, the club would like to thank Thomas and his staff for all their efforts during their time at the club. Thomas will deservedly have a place in Chelsea history after winning the Champions League. Super Cup and Club World Cup during his time here.”
Tuchel was appointed to replace Frank Lampard on January 26, 2021 and led the club to their second Champions League title just four months later.
Later that year he added the Uefa Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup.
