Chelsea news LIVE: Blues announce Thomas Tuchel has been SACKED following Champions League Dinamo Zagreb loss


Good morning Chelsea fans

Chelsea suffered a shock 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in their opening Champions League match  of the season at the Maksimir Stadium.

Mislav Orsic netted the winner after just 13 minutes following a brilliant ball by Bruno Petkovic.

This upset adds to the Blues’ bumpy start to the campaign, which has seen them lose two out of six Premier League matches – of which they have won three.

And Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel didn’t hold back in his post-match interview as he admitted “everything is missing” and the team’s problems are very real.

Tuchel said: “It’s an underperformance from us. We don’t finish our half-chances We conceded a counterattack that is far too easy. And we lose the next match.

“There’s too much to analyse, I am part of this. At the moment, everything is missing. I will not talk about individuals, we play as a team, we lose as a team.

“I need to find a solution for the next match. It’s not enough, it has noting to do with a worry, that’s reality.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has liked a tweet about Mason Mount’s contract situation, with talks expected to begin over a new deal.

Mount is currently tied down until 2024 at Stamford Bridge and it was reported that he is ready to hold talks about an extension.

And now Boehly has liked a tweet, an indication that the Blues will soon open a dialogue to complete a deal with the attacking midfielder.

Finally, Chelsea star Edouard Mendy has rejected a contract offer that was worth less than Kepa Arrizabalaga’s deal.

Mendy was proposed less lucrative terms than backup goalie Kepa’s £190,000-a-week earnings.

That’s despite the goalkeeper being first choice between the sticks, and Kepa resigned to bench duty.

The Senegal international has turned down an initial offer from the West Londoners, according to the Evening Standard.

Kepa was handed a deal worth almost £200,000-a-week when he was signed from Athletic Bilbao for £71million back in 2018.

Mendy, on the other hand, has been one of the lowest earners at Stamford Bridge since his £22m arrival from Rennes in 2020.
