Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has come out to say that the club’s ownership uncertainty is making the Blues miss out on transfers. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the current ownership saga is enabling their rivals to gain an early advantage in the summer transfer market, and he hopes everything is resolved on time.
Tuchel added that he remains committed and passionate about his role as Chelsea manager.
His words, “[In a normal season], you are never fully sure but we would have some targets and we would have for sure contacted some players and found out about their situations,” he said.”Of course, now our hands are tied. We can still have talks inside the building but we cannot act. The situation is not ideal.”
“It would be challenging enough with a stable situation but we don’t have it. Everybody is doing it for the first time, we try to show our commitment and our passion for it. This is for me very important to give this message: I am committed, I am looking forward and I am passionate about it. As soon as we can act, we will try to act and turn things around.”
“You could see we could not compete over the long run, we could compete in periods, we can compete in direct matches. I was so happy with the structure and mentality that Chelsea provides because for me that was the foundation to strongly believe we are capable and we will keep on pushing.”
“With this now questioned, it is getting more demanding, not difficult because I don’t know what’s coming — but the thing for me is that we keep the mentality here in the building, the competitive mentality which was installed over a decade. This is a bit concerning and hopefully we can find our way through it.”
