Chelsea boss Tuchel surprised by Spurs sacking by Mourinho

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is surprised by the sacking of Jose Mourinho by Tottenham.

Mourinho has been shown the door less than a week before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City, with academy coach Ryan Mason to take first-team training.

Speaking to reporters on Monday afternoon, current Chelsea boss Tuchel said: “More or less I am always a bit surprised when it happens.

“We are all competitors and we try to beat each other but in the end we wish all managers have a good atmosphere.

“It never feels good as another manager. Everybody fights hard for results and when a big decision like this comes it was a surprise.

“I honestly did not see it coming."
