After Roman Abramovich chose to sell Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel thinks the club is still “the right match” for him and that he has been schooled to live with uncertainty.
Abramovich revealed on Wednesday that he will sell the European champions after 19 years as their owner, stating that the decision is “in the best interests of the club.”
Petr Cech, Chelsea’s technical and performance advisor, has addressed players and staff about the situation at Stamford Bridge, according to Tuchel, with the underlying message being to focus on football.
The Blues’ head coach, who signed a two-and-a-half-year contract to succeed Frank Lampard in January 2021, believes the extraordinary circumstances haven’t made him reconsider his future plans.
On Friday, he told reporters: “Staying here is the polar opposite of a problem for me. I’ve stated many times that I enjoy working in the Premier League and that I enjoy being in England ” It’s a fantastic location to be because of the heritage and enthusiasm for sports in general, and football in particular ” Chelsea is, in my opinion, a fantastic match. I enjoy being here and everything about the club, and I hope it will continue.” ” There is now uncertainty, but isn’t there always when you’re in charge of a football team? As a result, I’ve learned to live with it. Of course, there are many levels, and this is one of them, to be honest, but I’m certain that everything will work out.”

“It’s pointless to be concerned about things since we don’t have much if any, effect,” he continued.
“We are permitted to focus on football and will do our best to do so.”
This is what we try to do, to create an atmosphere where you feel safe once you enter the building, where you feel calm, and because we do this on a daily basis, it can now help with the situation.
“It wasn’t just the team [who had a briefing after the FA Cup win at Luton Town], but the entire staff, this is what we try to do, to create an atmosphere where you feel safe once you enter the building, where you feel calm, and because we do this on a ”
Of course, there is uncertainty, as there is with all humans; there are over 100 people in the building, and everyone will have a different reaction to this.
“Some will be terrified, some will be happy, some will be sad, and I believe everything is permissible for each individual, but we can and should focus on what we love the most, which is football.”
