Gus Poyet on Tuchel’s arrival at Chelsea: being a German coach was a central factor

Gus Poyet thinks that by the availability of Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea had his head turned, but not generally to assist Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.

According to former Stamford Bridge favourite Gus Poyet, being quickly chosen as Frank Lampard’s replacement at Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel being a German coach was a central factor.

However, given the popularity of a high-pressing style made popular in recent seasons by the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Ralph Hassenhuttl, and Hansi Flick, Poyet believes a broader trend is at stake.

“I think, with all respect to Tuchel, it plays a very, very important role that he is German,” Poyet told Stats Perform News.

“If he was not German it wouldn’t matter that he was coming out of Paris Saint-Germain. I think the German side had a big influence.”

“[Now] we need to wait and see you. There is an interesting relationship there with [Chelsea’s ex-PSG captain] Thiago Silva, they know each other from the past and the rest, we’ll see.”
