Tuchel’s reaction as Abramovich confirms Chelsea sale

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has reacted to the decision of the club owner and Russian billionaire to sell the clue amidst the Russia and Ukraine war.

Tuchel, in a statement, said it was the best decision taken by Abramovich.

Recall that On Wednesday, Abramovich confirmed he is accepting bids to sell the Premier League club.

This comes amid calls for the 55-year-old billionaire to be sanctioned following President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

Abramovich, who bought Chelsea in 2003, admitted he had made the “painful” decision to offload the club, and he released the statement before the Blues beat Luton 3-2 in the FA Cup.

When asked for his reaction, Tuchel told BBC Sport: “Maybe I heard it a little bit earlier than you, but still it was very close to the kick-off!

Well, you know, we heard the rumours throughout the day and it’s on TV, and when we have team meetings and we eat together the guys talk about it – everybody talks about it.

So, yeah, it is big news, let’s wait and see for the best and see what the day brings.”

Tuchel was asked if he feels it is the right decision, he replied: “I think every decision he takes is the right decision.

“It’s his choice, it’s his club, and it’s not on me to comment.”
