Antonio Rudiger was surprised by Thomas Tuchel sacking

Thomas Tuchel was sacked by Chelsea back in September.

The German coach was sacked in September and was replaced with Graham Potter in the subsequent days.

Tuchel has helped Chelsea win the Champions League back in 2021 in his first spell at the club.

Former Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger who made a move this summer to Real Madrid was unhappy with Tuchel’s dismissal.

He told the Guardian : “It hit me. What he achieved in the club, even if it was under the old regime, it was a shock. He gets players that he wants and then all of a sudden he’s gone. But it’s Chelsea. It’s also somehow not a surprise.

I messaged him and said: ‘Thank you very much for everything you did.’ Not only for me but for all of us. Without him winning the Champions League was a bit far away.”

“All the questions that came up, the way he handled himself, I think you couldn’t have done it better,” added Rudiger.

“He took a lot of pressure from a lot of people away. Not only us players. You heard a lot from him. I think it was a very tiring situation for him. You have to focus on your job as a manager and then you have all these political questions you have to answer. He was unbelievable.”
