Thomas Tuchel given 90 day-deadline to leave the UK after being sacked by Chelsea

 

 

Thomas Tuchel has 90 days to leave the UK after being sacked by Chelsea.

Tuchel was sacked from Stamford Bridge in early September after a shock 0-1 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League.

The German had previously received unprecedented support in the transfer market, but despite a record spending spree, the board decided to sack the manager just days after it had been completed.

The Telegraph reports that Tuchel’s headache is far from over. He is expected to be given a 90-day deadline to leave the UK, although the report says the situation is unclear as he was one of the first managers appointed after the post-Brexit rules came into force in January 2021.

When he was at the club, he did so with a visa for approval of governing bodies, which was introduced after the UK left the EU. It is still unclear how the situation will be resolved.

“We will follow the UK’s rules and adjust any future plans,” a spokesman for the former Chelsea manager told the newspaper. “Final decisions have not yet been made.”

What’s next for Tuchel?

 

 

At present, Tuchel is still living in the UK with his family, and neither the Home Office nor the Football Association have made clear what his situation is.

Meanwhile, the chances of Tuchel getting a new job after a successful spell in charge of Chelsea are still high.

He has been linked with a possible move to European giants Bayern Munich and Juventus, where head coaches Julian Nagelsmann and Massimiliano Allegri have come under intense pressure due to poor starts to the season.

For now, it seems that Tuchel’s next move will be away from the UK anyway, but the speed with which he has to leave the country after leaving Chelsea is still undesirable.
