Former Chelsea star, Joe Cole, has given two reasons the club’s co-owner Todd Boehly’s decision to sack Thomas Tuchel was wrong.

Cole believes Boehly was wrong to dismiss Tuchel because the German was connected to the Chelsea fans and he won trophies.

Boehly had sacked Tuchel last Wednesday following their Champions League 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.

The American quickly appointed Graham Potter to succeed Tuchel the following day.

“I’m happy to say I think it was the wrong decision to get rid of Thomas Tuchel. He connected to the Chelsea fans and he won trophies,” Cole told the FIVE YouTube channel when asked for his take on Tuchel’s sacking and the appointment of Potter.

“He was in a difficult period, that’s for sure, but getting rid of him was harsh. How was it handled? There’s no good way to get rid of a manager, but I think the decision was wrong and they could have stuck with him.

“Chelsea fans are used to getting [Antonio] Conte, [Jose] Mourinho… top manager. But to go with Graham Potter, I’m actually quite excited about that because that suggests to me that we’re going in a different direction and looking for stability.

“For all of the success Chelsea have had, if we had stability like Man City have had with Pep [Guardiola], we could have had more.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes. It’s okay saying he’s our manager for the next few years, but what if we don’t get into the Champions League? That’s when the test is going to come.

“But I’m excited because I love his brand of football. Only time will tell, but maybe we can get more stability under the new owners.

“I feel for Thomas Tuchel, it’s harsh because he’s a top manager. I tell you who will be kicking themselves a little bit: Man United. I bet they wish this happened three or four months ago.

“I don’t know how the Ten Hag era will go – it’s looking promising at the moment – but Thomas Tuchel is exactly what Man United need. He’s the type of character who can galvanize a group. I think he’s different gear, Thomas Tuchel.”
