Thomas Tuchel was shocked the way he was sacked by the Chelsea owners.
The German tactician was shocked with his sacking at Chelsea back in September by club owner Todd Boehly.
Tuchel is now back to management with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich after a brief hiatus.
He won the Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup during his time at the West London club but he was ushered through the exits without much hesitation.
Tuchel confessed: “It was a shock. I felt it, strangely, when I drove to the training centre. The meeting we had felt unusual – and it turned out to be a very short meeting. It was 8am, or something, and it lasted three to five minutes. I was also not in the mood to talk longer.
“The decision had been made and, honestly, it was a shock for all of us. We had a feeling that we were in the right spot at the right time. We felt that we could achieve big things and we wanted to stay longer – it was as simple as that.
“It wasn’t in my hands to take this decision. I was no longer part of this group, a group that felt like a family.”
