It seldom happens that once in a season a hardened manager gets the fans’ enthusiasm right away from the new team. However, coach Thomas Tuchel (48, photographed), who became the new command tower of the English Premier League (EPL) Chelsea, just two months after being hard at the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) of the French League, is receiving the most attention in European football. This is thanks to the fact that he was assigned as a firefighter to Chelsea in crisis and quickly turned the team around.

Chelsea beat Newcastle United 2-0 with Olivier Girou and Timo Werner’s consecutive goals in the 2020-2021 EPL round 24 home game held at Stamford Bridge in London on the 16th. With this, he recorded 4 wins and 1 draw after taking over as coach Tuhel, including his recent 4 consecutive wins. After falling to the middle of the ranks, Chelsea climbed the ranks to fourth place, where tickets for the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL) were awarded.

From the time he was appointed, there was an expectation. This is because Tuhel is an outstanding tactician who led PSG last year and achieved runner-up in UCL. Chelsea also believed in such abilities and struck down manager Frank Lampard during the season and signed Tuchel at the end of last month. Tuhel made a great reversal as if he had been assigned to Chelsea. Star players, who couldn’t find their role and didn’t pay the ransom, began to make great strides in Tuhel’s tactics. Now, attention is focused on how long Tuhel will continue the cruise. If the performance is good, the grotesque character of the command tower is not a problem, but if unfortunate results begin to come out, conflicts can arise at any time.
