Roman Abramovich chose to sell Chelsea, and Thomas Tuchel has disclosed that he had ample time to prepare for it. He also explained how essential measures for their clash against Burnley had also allowed him and his players to maintain their focus on the game.
Abramovich’s 19-year ownership of the club may be coming to a close, but our head coach was well aware of the prospect because he communicated with director Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech, their technical and performance advisor, regularly.

He made the extremely tough call to put Chelsea on sale, as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continued to escalate.
As the owner of Chelsea since 2003, the 55-year-old has seen his team win 19 major trophies during his tenure at Stamford Bridge. However, a coalition of millionaires has already expressed an interest in a purchase, bringing an end to his golden era in west London.
According to many Singapore news reports, billionaire Swiss businessman American investor Todd Boehly and Hansjorg Wyss are collaborating on a bid for the Blues.
Abramovich may face penalties from the UK government because of his closeness to the Russian government, but he is also said to be trying to broker a peace settlement between Ukraine and Russia.
No further info
Although Thomas Tuchel believes that further information about Chelsea’s sale would be beneficial, he has revealed that he currently has none.
Roman Abramovich put Chelsea on the market last week when Russia invaded Ukraine, and the 55-year-old was compelled to sell up after spending 19 years at the club.
When asked about the sale, Tuchel said he said in many SG news interviews that it had no details to share with the media. The German head coach insisted that he had no new information on the sale of his company.
Raine Group, a New York-based merchant bank in charge of the sale, has already received bids from interested parties. The acquisition will not be hastened by the bank. It’s only a matter of how long before the fans have made out what the club’s future holds.
Buyers have begun to express an interest, and the Raine Group, a New York-based merchant bank coordinating the sale, has received proposals. The acquisition will not be hastened by the bank. Spectators have been waiting impatiently to learn whatever the future might hold for their favorite team.
It’s only a matter of time
To expedite the sale of Chelsea and maybe lower the final sale price, 86-year-old Swiss industrialist Wyss has already expressed his desire to bid on the club. At least according to many web news today in Singapore.
This is one of a prospective string of Wyss partners, American Boehly, has been announced. With two Champions League triumphs under his belt and a recent Club World Cup triumph under his belt, Roman Abramovich has pledged to take his time selling the club he founded and built.
Abramovich promised to repay his £1.5 billion loans and to use the revenues to help the people of Ukraine who have been displaced by Russia’s invasion.
Preparing for the inevitable
So far no one has come to Tuchel with particular concerns about the future, but Tuchel believes that the daily rhythm of existence at Cobham and preparation for our next game provides a welcome dose of regularity, and also maintains attention focused on football, which is what we’re trying to do here at Cobham.
On the other hand, Tuchel referred to his resignation from Paris Saint-Germain immediately before arriving in west London as something of a reminder of why he regards uncertainty as a normal part of the work in his industry, regardless of the actual scenario.
