Tuchel has not spoken to Abramovich since his decision.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says he’s yet to hear from owner Roman Abramovich about his plans to sell the club.
The Russian owner recently announced he was selling Chelsea and soon, we will see a new owner at Stamford Bridge. Roman Abramovich remained the owner for 19 years and the club achieved big glories.
Abramovich wants around £3.5 billion for the club. Recently, American tycoon Todd Boehly put his name ahead in the race.
Tuchel has not spoken to Abramovich since his decision. The Chelsea’s head said, “I was not in direct contact with the owner, which is not a surprising thing because we have not had so much contact directly.
“My contact is always Petr Cech and Marina Granovskaia, on a very regular basis, which is until now always excellent.
“Chelsea was always a Roman Abramovich club in my point of view, and was run by a compassionate and committed owner.
“This is so new, and such a big change of course, that I’m not even sure how I feel about it. I’m very happy to come here to work, because on a daily basis, once we are in the building there is not a big change.
“The owner was not here for lunch and not here for meetings, not here for training – so this does actually at the moment look very normal. It gives everybody a good feeling.”
Tuchel also added, “We have installed a culture at the club.
“We are trying to live this culture on a daily basis, so we have all the tools we need to navigate through a storm. I could feel it coming.
“You try and install principles. You need to be clear – and when the storm’s coming you need to function on the basis that you can rely on each other. The foundation is the club culture – it was always football first. This is what we do right now.”
“The owner is selling a well structured, top organisation. I don’t see why we should be in fear. This club is so well placed, so well organised, so functional, it’s a pleasure to work here. It’s the highest level that I have experienced, Tuchel added.
“Yes, we will have a new owner – but does that mean the organisation is in question, or the structure? I don’t think it is a given.
“Maybe it is. If it is we need to talk again – but to think about it now makes no sense.”
