Chelsea Manager Thomas Tuchel has finally broken his silence over the near-damaging takeover crisis at Chelsea, MySportDab reports.
Recall that Chelsea has been enmeshed in a series of ownership crisis which nearly put the London side out of business.
A face-off between the UK government and embattled former owner, Roman Abramovich had nearly crippled the London-based side.
The departure of players such as Antonio Rudiger has been linked to this crisis.
Rudiger will no longer be a part of the Blues’ squad next summer after tuning down contract renewal talks with the 2021 UEFA Champions League Winners.
The UK government had insisted that Roman Abramovich leaves the club without access to any proceeds of the takeover transaction.
The Blues license was due to expire by may 31st and there were threats of non -renewal of their operating license.
This caused an uproar in the Blues’ dressing room with many players preparing to exit the Stamford Bridge amidst an uncertain future.
All tensions and concerns were laid to rest when American multi-billion dollar investor Todd Boerly emerged as the new owner of Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel has finally reacted to the takeover crisis. Tuchel expressed his disappointment with the development.
The German called the takeover crisis a distraction that has affected the performance of the Blues.
“is like we are the first club passing through this and it is not good for the team.”
Tuchel asserted that it is not a question of whether the team has been affected but a question of to what extent it has and how fast they can recover.
Chelsea surrendered a 2-0 lead to Wolves but the Blues are in a strong position to make it to finish in the top four this season.
