Chelsea FC have sacked head coach Thomas Tuchel.

This follows and embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Champions League minnows Dinamo Zagreb barely one day ago.

In a statement, the club said Tuchel “will rightly have a place in Chelsea’s history after winning the Champions League, the Super Cup and Club World Cup in his time here.”

It added: “As the new ownership group reaches 100 days since taking over the club, and as it continues its hard work to take the club forward, the new owners believe it is the right time to make this transition,”

“Chelsea’s coaching staff will take charge of the team for training and the preparation of our upcoming matches as the club moves swiftly to appoint a new head coach.”
