After Thomas Tuchel was fired from Chelsea, Antonio Rudiger expressed his feelings.
In an outspoken statement, Rudiger expressed surprise at Chelsea and Todd Bohley’s decision to fire the German manager and said he had sent the German a message of gratitude for all that he had done for him.
Keep in mind that Chelsea fired Thomas Tuchel following their defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League opener.
Graham Potter, the former manager of Brighton, took over for Thomas Tuchel.
The most astonishing aspect of Thomas Tuchel’s dismissal was that manager was not given a second opportunity despite the Blues having already given him permission to spend £280 million on fresh player acquisitions.
In an interview with Sport 1, Antonio Rudiger, who departed Chelsea last season on a free transfer despite Thomas Tuchel’s efforts to keep him, said: “They allowed him acquire new players only to subsequently let him go after a few matches. The quickness with which they replaced him astonished me.
“I was saddened the day he was fired. I later sent him a letter in which I expressed my gratitude for all that he had done.
If you look at where we started and where he led us, he accomplished the impossible in order to win numerous trophies. But you’re aware of how football works. You play both the villain and the hero at times.
