NCD SPORT: Carragher speaks on Thomas Tuchel’s sack after Chelsea’s record spending
Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel has been described as one of the best managers in Europe.
Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher said this while admitting that the former Borussia Dortmund boss may be under pressure following Chelsea’s record-breaking spending spree in the just concluded transfer market.
Chelsea’s signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang took their summer spending to £278.4million.
This made Chelsea the club with the highest spending in a single window ever.
Asked if the spending has put Tuchel under pressure, Carragher said, “Yes, that is the name of the game for any top club, and that has always been the situation at Chelsea.
“It will be interesting to see if the change in ownership changes how ruthless the club was with managers under Roman Abramovich.
“But, for me, Thomas Tuchel is one of the best managers in Europe, he’s a Champions League winner, and right now in the Premier League it’s been tough competing with Manchester City and Liverpool.
“Chelsea did need a rejig at centre-back given the players they lost, so you can understand why they have had to go into the market. But there is no doubt they have paid big money for some of the players.”
