Tottenham boss Antonio Conte breaks silence on Chelsea sacking Thomas Tuchel

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte who was sacked at Chelsea reacts to Thomas Tuchel losing his job.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte says he is not the best person to comment on the business of Chelsea after they sacked manager Thomas Tuchel on Wednesday morning.

The German manager was fired after a slow start to the season that has seen them lose three of their first seven games of the season.

Tuchel who won the Champions League four months after taking over from Frank Lampard in 2021 paid the ultimate price after his side lost 1-0 to Dinamo Zagreb.

Chelsea’s new owners led by Todd Boehly backed the German manager, splashing the cash on players like Wesley Fofana and Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.

They had also brought Marc Cucurella from Brighton and Hove Albion and replaced Antonio Rudiger with Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

With an outlay of around £300 million spent this summer- the new owners decided to pull the plugs on Tuchel despite the transfer window only just being shut five days ago.

Antonio Conte who himself got fired after leading Chelsea to Premier League and FA Cup admitted he would not be the best person to comment as he doesn’t have the full details.

He told reporters after the 2-0 win over Marseille in the Champions League: “I don’t want to be disrespectful, and when another club takes a decision, I think it’s right to not comment because you don’t know what happened.”

In other news Tottenham produced a solid performance to beat Marseille and begin their Champions League campaign with an impressive 2-0 win.

Summer signing Richarlison scored a brace to ensure that the Lillywhites started their European adventure on the right foot.

They will now turn their attention to the Premier League trip against champions Manchester City this weekend.
