Tuchel's love life 'was hot topic in Chelsea dressing room with stars gossiping about divorce and younger girlfriend' | The Sun

THOMAS TUCHEL'S love live is said to have been centre of gossip in the Chelsea dressing room.

The German has been shockingly sacked as Blues boss just 100 games and two seasons into his reign.


Since the stunning announcement, revelations about Tuchel's final months in charge at Stamford Bridge have emerged.

According to The Independent, even the manager's divorce from wife Sissi and new relationship with Natalie Max were discussed among Chelsea stars.

And it is even claimed some players changed their perception of Tuchel around the time he split with Sissi after 13 years of marriage and later dated Natalie.

Tuchel, 49, and Sissi, 46, announced their marriage was over in April and parted officially in May after filing for divorce.

PSG's former boss, who has two daughters with Sissi, in July was spotted with Brazilian Natalie, 35, as the pair holidayed in Sardinia.

The London-based mum-of-two runs her own business and is believed to have grown close with Tuchel following restaurant dates.

It has now been claimed that the Champions League-winning manager's private life became a contributing factor among football-related issues to his dismissal as players began to view him in a different light.

SunSport can also reveal throughout the summer the distance between Tuchel and the new owners had been steadily growing.

Sources at Chelsea claim he was growing increasingly fed up and believed that the new owners wanted to control every aspect of his job.

Behind the scenes on the club's US tour in the summer, Tuchel was rumoured to be unhappy.

His discussions over transfers with Boehly were strained.

There was a definite split over the plan by American Boehly to try to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United – a move Tuchel did not support.

The German won the day on that occasion and only last week Tuchel stated that he had been fully involved and in agreement over the club's world record £270million spending spree in the close season.

However, behind the scenes tension has been brewing for some time and it was reflected in results.

Tuchel, who replaced Frank Lampard in January 2021 and went on to win the Champions League, leaves off the back of a 1-0 loss at Dinamo Zagreb.
