It’s a difficult time for Chelsea Football Club right now, or at least off the field. On the field they are letting the football do the talking and enjoying some really good form.
Thomas Tuchel deserves credit for keeping focused and rallying the troops to continue getting results on the pitch while all the ownership noise gone on off of it.
The players too have been fantastic and the group has really united together to pull through this period. It’s far from over of course, and now will be all the talk about who will be the winning bidder.
Tuchel expects to hear something on that very soon and confirmed that all the bids are now in on the table.
He also confirmed that the Chelsea board are deciding with the UK Government who will be given the new ownership of the club, and says he wants that to be done as soon as possible.
“When (the sale process) gets crucial and decisive then it is enough that I know it,” Tuchel said as reported by The Daily Mirror.
“The offers are in now and the board tries to find a decision with the government as soon as possible.
“It’s everyone’s responsibility to show the right spirit, positivity, and not go into self-pity and worry about a situation we didn’t cause and can’t change. So it is still a pleasure to go to training and do what we do in an environment that is so supportive. That is my feeling about it.
“We can’t influence the situation, and we can’t change the situation. We had to find a certain level of accepting the situation and refocusing on what we can influence. That is our performance. The good thing is from day one I found a very ambitious club and a huge staff that is determined to push the players to the maximum level of performance.
“This includes focus, respectful behaviour, and an attitude of team spirit. These are the things that we rely on now, and trust. It’s impressive.”
