Thomas Tuchel Might Had Already Succeeded Where Mourinho, Conte and Sarri Failed At Chelsea
German coach Thomas Tuchel might have already succeeded where past coaches failed at Chelsea, as he had guided a football team like the Blues that is not managed by the faint-hearted to European glories in his maiden season. Repeatedly, some Chelsea players have always been tagged as impossible to motivate by angry coaches yet Thomas Tuchel has with ease worked with the same core squad of players winning along the way the club’s second Champions League title, a super cup, and also led them to a top-four finish, an FA Cup final as well.
The German boss has excelled in his task, bringing to life as well as boosting players with dead morales putting any issues of a lack of motivation to bed at Cobham and Stamford Bridge. Tuchel has set about his duties ignoring the obvious ‘motivation’ scourge at the club, used as retribution by managers for a streak of bad results. Years of torment and complaints issued by some of football’s most recognizable managers have been well documented at Chelsea.
The recent boss Tuchel has in his little way cracked from the looks of things, those issues. Top managers over the years with the likes of Antonio Conte, Maurizio Sarri, and Jose Mourinho in recent times always sighted ‘lack of motivation’ as a common theme following faltering form on the pitch. They complain bitterly how some Chelsea players were not giving their all when it comes to playing for the same club that pays them.
Sighting some examples, we start with Antonio Conte who ahead of an FA Cup Final, a few years down the line vented his anger at the Chelsea squad for their lack of motivation a game which would earmark his last for the club. But the Blues ‘motivation’ curse began to surface in 2011, with then-coach Ancelotti, who was sacked by Chelsea before him winning an English premier league trophy he was the first to sight the lack of motivation. 2015, it was Jose Mourinho’s turn as he also had echoed the same thing. After a disappointing loss to Arsenal, Sarri launched a public attack on his squad he was also later dismissed from his duties at Stamford Bridge.
Losing five games from 31 games in his maiden term, former Chelsea player turned coach Frank Lampard received his marching orders. This had brought in Thomas Tuchel at the helm of Stamford Bridge in January last season amid the west London club’s poor form.
However, the Chelsea recent boss Thomas Tuchel has ignored the faux following his impressive spell at Chelsea. Notwithstanding the obvious motivation issue rooted in the Cobham training ground described by so many managers.
