Emma Hayes is “gutted” over the Tuchel departure, she says.

Emma Hayes and Thomas Tuchel had a close relationship, and in her first press conference after his dismissal, she expressed her sadness and disappointment.


You could see the two had a genuine connection by watching how they interacted. They had a great time together last year when they both won awards at Cobham; there’s a video of them joking about and discussing football.

Hayes expressed her disappointment at Thomas Tuchel‘s departure and praised him as a “wonderful coach” who would do well in whatever environment.

We do not doubt that she will have a similar bond with Graham Potter, but there did appear to be a special understanding between her and Tuchel.

Hayes is aware of the fact that coaches unless they are as good as she is, don’t last long. Maybe they’ll run into each other again sometime, probably at another awards show.
