Former Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he was hurt after being sacked by the club.
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that Tuchel was fired last Wednesday, few hours after losing 1-0 against Dynamo Zagreb in the team’s first game of the ongoing UEFA Champions League season.
Taking to social media, said he was devastated by the news, adding that it was difficult for him to come up with the statement.
He wrote, “This is one of the most difficult statements I have ever had to write – and it is one which I hoped I would not need to do for many years. I am devastated that my time at Chelsea has come to an end.
“This is a club where I felt at home, both professionally and personally. Thank you so much to all the staff, the players and the supporters for making me feel very welcome from the start.
“The pride and joy I felt at helping the team to win the Champions League and the Club World Cup will stay with me forever. I am honoured to have been a part of this club’s history and the memories of the last 19 months will always have a special place in my heart.”
