Chelsea fans go angry after Thomas Tuchel says strange thing about title challenge, nanansem.com can report.
The new manager Thomas Tuchel has stated that it is almost impossible for the Blues to win the Premier League title this season.
He was appointed as new boss on Tuesday, January 26, replacing Frank Lampard who was sacked earlier on Monday.
🗣"When you sign for Chelsea as a player or a manager you sign for the expectation to fight for the title. That means Premier League, Champions League. That is absolutely right. But we have to be realistic."— Mirror Football (@MirrorFootball) January 27, 2021
Tuchel had to settle for a point as his first game in charge ended in a goalless draw at home against Wolves.
Chelsea languish in eighth but the new boss promised to work on the details and create a team no-one likes to play against.
When asked of the possibility of winning the title, he replied
“The title? Whaoh, it’s far away you know. When you sign for Chelsea as a player or like me as a manager, you sign for the expectation to challenge for titles. That means Premier League, the Champions League and all the cups. It’s absolutely clear.
“At the same time, we have to be realistic. There are a lot of teams between us and fourth – and a lot of points in between us. The best thing is that we don’t lose the focus and look too far, but stay and work on the details on a daily basis and the points will follow.
“This is the starting point. We will focus on our strengths and qualities and we will build a team nobody wants to play against, that’s the challenge. It’s for me to do that as fast as possible. For today, I was very pleased.
