Chelsea fans told Thomas Tuchel could get the sack by the end of the season, here’s why

Rio Ferdinand believes Chelsea could SACK Thomas Tuchel if he fails to guide the Blues to Champions League qualification this season.

After Frank Lampard failed to get the club the results that Roman Abramovic demanded, the Russian owner made the big decision to get rid of the club legend and bring in former PSG boss Tuchel.

The German former Borussia Dortmund and PSG manager has enjoyed a solid start to life in west London, drawing his debut match and winning the following four fixtures, and This positive run of results has seen the club book their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals, and also move to within one point of the top four.

Tuchel is now dreaming of Champions League football next season, but if he fails to get back inside those top four spots, Ferdinand has claimed that Tuchel could get the sack by the end of the season: “I think there is just a bit too much to do, maybe,” said Ferdinand as he discussed Chelsea’s fifth-placed finish on TalkSport.

“Leicester are still a fairly consistent team, and I think the other teams will be able to stay ahead of them.

“Listen, I do think [Tuchel] will get it right there – I like him as a manager and the players have taken to him immediately – but I think there’s a little bit to do to get in there.

Fellow pundit Robbie Savage then asked: “If they don’t [qualify for the Champions League], has he failed?”

And Ferdinand replied: “He could get the sack!”

“The remit, 100 per cent, is Champions League football – at a minimum.

“If he doesn’t get in there, you never know with the way that regime is run, he could get the sack!” – Rio

We mean, it could happen right?
