Thomas Tuchel was “frustrated” after being fired as Chelsea’s manager, according to a player.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Chelsea has commented on the firing of Thomas Tuchel. After last week’s 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League, the German coach was let go from his position at Chelsea. As reported by Metro, the Blues’ veteran forward said on Hayters TV following their 1-1 draw with RB Salzburg:

“Everybody is aware of my past with Thomas. A member’s departure inevitably causes sadness among the regulars. a couple days with him. The demands of the game of football might force players to make quick adjustments during the course of a season.”

Aubameyang said this in response to a question about whether or not he had contacted Tuchel: “Currently, no. I’d like to have a chat with him as soon as I can because I think he was feeling a bit down and frustrated. It’s been a rough week for everyone, but that’s life; we have to roll with the punches and find our own ways to deal with the unexpected.”

‘I believe it’s a bit weird for everybody, not just me, but as I said, this is football, you have to adjust, when you play for Chelsea you need results as quickly as possible, that’s why I’m a bit irritated today,’ he continued.
Chelsea has replaced Thomas Tuchel with Graham Potter.
Graham Potter took over for Tuchel. His Blues’ debut as a head coach was against Salzburg. For the Blues, Armando Broja came on in the second half for Aubameyang in the starting lineup up front. Ex-Barcelona forward said this regarding his new coach’s personality and approach to strategy.

“I think he’s a good guy, a fantastic guy, and we’ll do our best to learn from him and eventually beat him. The way I see it, it shouldn’t be too hard to implement his notion. Simply said, it’s learning to live with one another.”
