​Keane backs 'top quality' Tuchel to stay at Chelsea


Manchester United legend Roy Keane has backed Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel to ride through this present storm.

The Blues are enduring a difficult pre-season after the takeover by Todd Boehly's consortium from Roman Abramovich in the spring.

While Chelsea have secured Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling, they are struggling to get other deals done.

However, Keane can't see Tuchel walking away from Stamford Bridge in the immediate future.

"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," Keane said to Sky Bet regarding Tuchel, speaking after the Blues' lost 4-0 to Arsenal in a pre-season friendly.

"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."
