Roman Abramovic getting impatient as Tuchel enters second trophyless day


Thomas Tuchel under pressure in second trophyless day

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic is said to be growing impatient with new manager Thomas Tuchel as he began his second day on the payroll without securing any silverware whatsoever.

Early indications are that Abramovic is unlikely to wield the axe just yet, but club insiders say that his frustration is already growing exponentially.

A Chelsea source told us, “Roman wants to win the League and the Champions League again, and Thomas hasn’t yet done that for Chelsea, so of course, his job is on the line – why wouldn’t it be?

“In modern football, you don’t get the time to build an empire like in the years gone by.  If he hasn’t won the Champions League by the end of February then don’t be surprised to see him on the way out.

“Just because we’ve made him one of the best-paid coaches in world football doesn’t mean for one second he’ll be allowed an entire season to win the lucrative trophy – Roman didn’t get where he is today by working to other people’s timetables.”

Tuchel spoke to the media at the club’s training ground, telling reporters, “I thought he was joking when the moment I signed the contract he looked me in the eye and said, ‘So, have we won it yet?’.

“I can assure every Chelsea fan that I am doing everything in my power to find a way to deliver the league title and the Champions League before the daffodils are out of the ground.

“And the fact I’ve taken to wearing a bullet-proof vest to work is entirely coincidental.”
