Thomas Tuchel reacting to his Chelsea banner goes viral after sacking

Thomas Tuchel has been sacked as Chelsea manager.

Following the Blues’ 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League on Tuesday, the German was dismissed on Wednesday morning.

The decision made by new owner Todd Boehly comes after the club spent £270 million in the summer but have had an unconvincing start to the 2022/23 campaign.

While results may not have been great recently, Tuchel will always have a place in Chelsea’s history.

He led the club to an unlikely Champions League triumph in 2020/21, beating Manchester City in the final.

For that, he will have a place in the hearts of Chelsea fans around the world forever.

That much could be seen in May – at the end of last season.

Chelsea fans at the Shed End at Stamford Bridge unveiled their new ‘DEUTSCHER MAESTRO’ banner ahead of their draw against Leicester.

And it’s Tuchel’s reaction to seeing that banner for the very first time that many Chelsea fans are sharing following the news of his sacking.

Tuchel spots his banner and couldn’t hide his delight as he beams from ear to ear before shaking the hand of his coaching staff.

The wholesome footage is pretty emotional just hours after his dismissal.

Speaking after that match, Tuchel thanked Chelsea fans for the banner.

“I saw the banner,” he told Chelsea TV. “I was looking at Mason’s banner, I didn’t see that I had a banner. It’s fantastic, thank you very much for that. It’s unbelievable, the first time, very happy about it.”

It’s pretty crazy to think that was just a few months ago.
