Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has insisted that he was surprised to see Tottenham sack manager, Jose Mourinho, insisting that he didn’t see the move coming.
Mourinho was sacked on Monday following Tottenham’s Premier League 2-2 draw with Everton last Friday night.
The decision to sack Mourinho came just days before Tottenham’s EFL Cup final tie against Manchester City on Sunday.
Reacting to the development, Tuchel told a press conference as quoted by Sport Review: “More or less I am always a bit surprised when it happens [a managerial sacking].
“We are all competitors, and we all try to beat each other, but in the end, we wish every manager has a good atmosphere and is in a good state and place to work.
“It never feels good as another manager when someone is sacked, but it’s not my job to comment on that. It is what it is.
“Everybody fights hard for results, and when a big decision comes like this, it was a surprise. I honestly didn’t see it coming.”
