“There must be some things happening behind the scenes” – Rio Ferdinand says Tuchel looks disgruntled and unhappy at Chelsea
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has warned Chelsea not to make manager Thomas Tuchel unhappy.
Following the Blues’ 4-0 pre-season defeat against Arsenal, The Mirror reported that Tuchel went on a huge rant during his press-confernece.
The German boss felt his side were not ready for the new season and that they needed more new signings.
Chelsea have so far signed Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Carney Chukwuemeka this summer, but Ferdinand is concerned that behind the scenes matters are upsetting the 48-year- old. The former England defender told The Mirror:
“I don’t care about results in pre- season, it was more the aftermath. The way the manager spoke in the press conference afterwards was the startling thing for me, it opened my eyes.
“There must be some things happening behind the scenes that we’re not aware of as yet, he seems disgruntled and unhappy. There are maybe some players angling for a move behind-the-scenes that we’re not aware of.
He’s brought Sterling in who will be a great addition, but if they lose the players that they’re talking about losing.
“Rudiger’s a massive loss, but Koulibaly’s come in, I think he’ll be a good signing this year. He’s experienced.
But I think they need more again and I think he’s very aware of that and it’s not happening quick enough for them. If they don’t have any more movement in the window, I’d be worried about them.”
