Glen Johnson claim that Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel might be forced to ‘look over his shoulder’ should Roman Abramovich remain the club’s owner.
A poor first-leg playout against Real Madrid painted a disturbing picture for the Blues fans, which may have gotten the attention of Abramovich.
Abramovich bought Chelsea in 2003 and had his UK assets frozen by the government in response to Russia’s widely-condemned invasion of Ukraine.
That cut off the blues from their owner’s money and forced the billionaire into a sale from which he would not be allowed to make a penny, which suggests Abramovich might be on his way out.
Tuchel made a reasonable effort to keep his players’ minds focused on beginning with. Still, two defeats against Brentford and Real Madrid were a cause for concern to the German as a potential exit from the Champions League could be enough reason to sack him.
“Real Madrid can beat anyone, but it was how Chelsea got beat at Stamford Bridge that was the disappointing thing, which Tuchel showed as well,” he explained to bettingodds.com, “It was more about that. Tuchel would be looking over his shoulder more if Roman was still there.”
