Another German manager turned down Chelsea job as Tuchel closes in Stamford Bridge move

Chelsea reportedly look set to appoint Thomas Tuchel as their next manager as Frank Lampard edges towards the sack.

The Telegraph broke the news of Lampard’s imminent sacking this morning, and The Athletic and others have since reported on Tuchel taking over in his place.

The Athletic’s report adds that former RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick was approached for an interim role with the Blues, but turned it down.

Luckily, Tuchel is one of the biggest names currently available as he was recently shown the door at Paris Saint-Germain.

Rangnick, however, is highly regarded in the game and it would have been intriguing to see him at Chelsea, even if only for a few months.

Either way, most CFC supporters will surely agree that it was time for Lampard to go, even if he is a club legend from his playing days.

The 42-year-old has just not looked up to such a big job this early on in his management career, and he could do well to work his way back up again from a smaller club.

    Appointing Tuchel could be a huge step backwards. There are good coaches who are delivering good results with minimum quality of players. I’m talking about the likes of Husenhuttl @S’ton, Nagelsmann @Leipzig, Erick Turn @Ajax and the likes. What is it axactly about Tuchel????? Come on Roman!

    Seriously, am sad frank is gone, cos I wanted it to work, even though I didn’t support the appointment…. I don’t know which one is making me look gloom, Frank’s dismissal or Tuchel’s appointment.

    I have never been impressed with Psg.

    Ole beat him there twice, he managed to win at old Trafford with luck …. This appointment is not going well with me…

    I think Abramovich needs to be patient with coaches. He has failed this time to sack Lampard. He should think of long term projects than quick results. Look at Liverpool, It took clop three years to make a strong team, Look at Man u, it took Ole years to build a good team.
