The Times released a report saying that Thomas Tuchel was ‘helpless’ in the Antonio Rudiger saga due to the club’s slow takeover process.
Until the new owners are decided, the club cannot plan for new transfers or extend deals. Players reportedly ‘feared’ that this would prompt the coach to leave Chelsea in the summer.
However, the manager made his plans clear in the pre-game press conference ahead of the Manchester United game: “There are still things, we have not reached our goals this season.
“There are big things to achieve. Next season life will go on whether we like it or not. From pre-season next season, we will give our very best and I will be fully involved with all my heart and knowledge.”
This more or less confirms that the German isn’t planning on an exit and will work his hardest to ensure that the Blues can be better despite the lack of transfer planning at the moment.
That’s great news for Chelsea as there is surely no better coach than him right now for the club.
