In a quick, ten-minute meeting, he pleaded the new owners to keep him on and give him more time, but Boehly and his staff had already made their choice.

Tuchel  Stated: “This is one of the most difficult statements I have ever had to write – and it is one which I hoped I would not need to do for many years.

“I am devastated that my time at Chelsea has come to an end.

“This is a club where I felt at home, both professionally and personally.

“Thank you so much to all the staff, the players and the supporters for making me feel very welcome from the start.

“The pride and joy I felt at helping the team to win the Champions League and the Club World Cup will stay with me forever.

“I am honoured to have been a part of this club’s history and whatever the future holds for me, the memories of the last 18 months will always have a special place in my heart.”

Chelsea moved quickly to replace Tuchel by paying Brighton’s compensation fee for Graham Potter and securing the English coach.

With his excellent man management skills, Potter, 47 is thought to be the best candidate to manage the Boehly era in the long run. He was therefore given a five-year worth  £10 million contract.
