Simon Jordan makes big negative claim about former Chelsea manager

Thomas Tuchel

Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan has made a big claim about Thomas Tuchel.

Tuchel has been one of the most successful managers of Chelsea alongside Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho. The German is only the second manager to win the elusive Champions League title with the Blues in their 119 year history.

On the other hand, Chelsea won 3 Premier League titles, 1 FA Cup and 1 Community Shield under Mourinho. And under Conte, they won a Premier League and a FA Cup in a short stint of 2 seasons.

Interestingly, all the three managers have been sacked by Chelsea in the past and all three of them will be available as free agents this summer as the Blues are rumored to sack Pochettino after a disappointing term.

Tuchel ‘divides’

Its confirmed that Thomas Tuchel will leave his current job at Bayern Munich at the end of the season. That means he’ll be available as a free agent this summer, at a time when a lot of top clubs will be looking for a new manager. However, Simon Jordan made a huge claim about Tuchel.

Discussing the German on talkSPORT, Jordan said: “I don’t think there’s ever a parallel universe where Liverpool would take Thomas Tuchel as their manager. Absolutely not.

“I don’t think Manchester United would take him, I don’t think Manchester City would take him, I don’t think Arsenal would take him, I don’t think Real Madrid would take him because I think they look at the reality of what Tuchel can and can’t be. I think he divides, I think he doesn’t create unity.”

Will Chelsea pay attention to what Jordan said about Tuchel?

Would Chelsea go anywhere near Tuchel? Seems Unlikely. They only sacked him last season. However, if the club decide to get rid of Pochettino, then Tuchel really should be an option for them.

Chelsea have only headed in one direction since his departure. It really would be interesting to see where they would be if the former Borussia Dortmund manager was not sacked.

He was the man who won them their second Champions League trophy and the team were in sixth when he left. They would kill to be there now.
