The Premier League is considered the most entertaining and lucrative football league globally. This is why managers are always under intense pressure to deliver results or face the consequences if things do not go their way. While some clubs may be patient and offer their managers time, some owners may not possess this gift and will be quick to pull the plug. One such club is Chelsea who recently replaced their coach Frank Lampard with Thomas Tuchel. With an impatient owner in Roman Ibrahimović, it remains to be seen what Thomas will achieve at Chelsea and how much time he will be afforded. Here are some of the things fans can expect from their new coach.
The 47-year-old German has been labelled a methodical thinker, a tactical visionary, a control freak and even a political power player. He is also a coach known to unite dressing rooms with his no-nonsense approach. At his previous club Paris St-Germain, he was constantly fighting with the sporting director over how the club was to be run. While some may argue that he never really brought out the best of a star-studded PSG side featuring Mbappe and Neymar, he still managed to win back-to-back domestic titles and reach the Champions League Final. While Tuchel has always had his eyes in taking charge of a Premier League team, he did not envision it taking place mid-season. However, he had earlier engaged with the Chelsea board when he left Borussia Dortmund in 2017. Thus, he will take this opportunity to prove himself in the most lucrative leagues in the world.

Unlike previous coach Frank Lampard, Tuchel has experience in various coaching environments. He started at Mainz before taking up Borussia Dortmund and PSG. He communicates extensively and offers tactical instructions to his players, something that seemed to be missing during the Frank Lampard era. Tuchel will also not be afraid to implement his own ideas and strategies if he feels it will help the team. At PSG, he was involved in monitoring his players’ sleeping patterns, diet, and involvement in the renovation of training facilities, among others.
What to expect
Thomas has been labelled a control freak due to his desire to control absolutely everything at the club. However, he will not be expected to take any drastic actions, especially with the season halfway. It expected that this would happen in the summer. After spending around £222m last summer, the club’s hierarchy will believe he can get the most out of the current squad. Tuchel has also worked with current Chelsea players Thiago Silva at PSG, and Christian Pulisic at Borussia Dortmund. He is also expected to help Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, both expensive imports from his home country, progress and reach their expected potentials. He was also interested in signing Antonio Rudiger and Jorginho while at PSG, but now can work directly with them.
