It has been made known that Thomas Tuchel was fired as a result of two prominent players' refusals to sign with Chelsea during the recently closed transfer window.



According to CBS Sports, Todd Boehly, the owner of Chelsea, was not pleased with the German because he was unable to persuade these players to join Chelsea.

Yesterday, Tuchel received his termination letter. According to reports, the 49-year-old reportedly begged for more time to make things right, but to no avail.

After a shocking 1-0 loss away to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League, he was directed to the exit.

According to CBS, his dismissal had more to do with his relationship with Chelsea's management than it did with his on-field performance or results.

Boehly and his fellow directors reportedly felt they missed out on signings as a result of Tuchel's lack of assistance in persuading players to move to Stamford Bridge.

The two players, Raphinha and Jules Kounde, both made the decision to transfer to Barcelona after their respective clubs reached a transfer agreement with Chelsea.

In the case of Kounde, Chelsea had agreed a fee with Sevilla, and Barca’s hierarchy had even resigned themselves to missing out on the Frenchman.

Boehly wanted Tuchel to sell the club to Kounde and felt the 23-year-old could be persuaded to snub Barca at that stage – though the German did not seem to share his owner’s enthusiasm over a deal.

According to the report, the German boss felt there were other options he would rather pursue and was not entirely convinced by Kounde.

Tuchel’s standoffish approach to convincing these players differed from that of Barcelona's boss, Xavi, who was in daily contact with Kounde in an effort to convince him to join.

Xavi was also in constant dialogue with Raphinha, outlining the role he envisaged for him and selling his vision for Barcelona.

The American billionaire club owner felt that the Blues had a genuine chance of signing Raphinha and was the first club to agree to a fee.
