Exactly two months have passed since Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK Government, in turn placing Chelsea Football Club into a state of limbo, and Thomas Tuchel has revealed how that development has, in time, affected his players.
The good news is there is light at the end of the tunnel, with a group led by Todd Boehly now in place to acquire the club. Tuchel confirmed at his press conference today that nothing has changed at Cobham, though, as final sign-offs from the Premier League and the Government is still required.
Tuchel confessed to feeling like a ‘spectator’ in the talks, but acknowledged ‘these are steps in the right direction’. With it, he hopes it will bring an end to the uncertainty surrounding the Blues, and in turn help the players’ focus following a stuttering run of form.
‘We are the only club at the moment who suffers like this, and maybe the first club ever to do so,’ noted Tuchel.
‘It is a unique and challenging situation, and of course everybody hopes it will be clarified. We have been waiting for it and we need that positive energy and competitive atmosphere.
