EPL: I’ll be amazed – Roy Keane speaks on Chelsea sacking Thomas Tuchel


Manchester United’s legend, Roy Keane, has spoken about the future of Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea.

Keane believes that Tuchel won’t be sacked by the club despite the rough time he is going through at Stamford Bridge.

The German has watched the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leave the club to join Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively.

Chelsea’s main striker, Romelu Lukaku has also left Stamford Bridge and returned to Inter Milan, while the club’s captain, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso are also looking at the exit door.

It was a difficult second season for Tuchel as he led the Blues to a fourth place finish, 19 points behind champions, Manchester City.

But Keane, a former Manchester United captain, is confident the former Borussia Dortmund and PSG boss is still the right man for the job..

Asked whether Chelsea could have a new manager by Christmas, Keane told Sky Bet: “No, I don’t think so. There has obviously been loads of uncertainty over the club the last few months, that has been sorted out now obviously with the new ownership coming in

“I’m pretty sure again he will be able to bring some players in. He is a top quality manager, he has dealt with a lot of issues over the last few months.

“Ultimately, it was a disappointing end to the season for them. But he is a top quality manager and I think the owners will back him. I’d be amazed if he is not there at Christmas.”
