Chelsea sack Thomas Tuchel after the Champions League defeat

So far this season, Chelsea, which has spent a lot of money in the transfer window, has not had an ideal record at the beginning of the season. They have scored 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in the first 6 rounds of the Premier League and  temporarily rank sixth. In the first round of the Champions League group stage, Chelsea lost 0-1 to Dinamo Zagreb in an upset away game.

Tuchel became the Blues coach in January 2021 and led his team to the Champions League that season, and then he led the team to the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup. It is worth mentioning that this game against Dinamo Zagreb is also Tuchel’s 100-game milestone for Chelsea.
