Chelsea sack Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel has been fired as manager of the Chelsea football club following the team's dismal start to the season, which was compounded by a loss in their opening European match.

The German international is believed to be the cause of the Blues' erratic start to the season, and the board at Stamford Bridge had had enough after Tuesday's 1-0 Champions League loss to Dinamo Zagreb, Strenuousblog reports.

The club on its official website wrote, "On behalf of everyone at Chelsea FC, the Club would like to place on record its gratitude to Thomas and his staff for all their efforts during their time with the Club. 

"Thomas will rightly have a place in Chelsea’s history after winning the Champions League, the Super Cup and Club World Cup in his time here.

"As the new ownership group reaches 100 days since taking over the Club, and as it continues its hard work to take the club forward, the new owners believe it is the right time to make this transition.

"Chelsea’s coaching staff will take charge of the team for training and the preparation of our upcoming matches as the Club moves swiftly to appoint a new head coach.

"There will be no further comment until a new head coach appointment is made."

As seen on their official twitter, "RB Leipzig have parted company with Domenico Tedesco with immediate effect.
