Tuchel set to receive £13m pay-off after being sacked by Chelsea

According to the Daily Mail, Thomas Tuchel will reportedly receive an eye-watering £13m payout after being sacked by Chelsea on Wednesday morning.

The 49 year old German was shown the exit door after he guided Chelsea to just three wins in their opening seven fixtures this season following a summer of upheaval and uncertainty at Stamford Bridge.

Tuesday’s dismal 1-0 defeat away to Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League group-stage opener put the nail in the German’s coffin.

After pulling the trigger, Blues owner Todd Boehly moved quickly to find a successor and the American tycoon has already received permission from Brighton to hold talks with their boss, Graham Potter.

The Daily Mail has now claimed that Tuchel will receive a cool £13m for vacating the Stamford Bridge dugout, while his coaching staff are set to be given a combined sum of £2m.

According to The Sun, tensions had been rising behind the scenes ever since the club’s £4.25b takeover in May, as a host of figures who Tuchel had good relationships with departed.

The newspaper also reported that Tuchel was said to have pleaded to keep his job, but the Chelsea owners had already made up their minds and the German was told to pack his things.
