Thomas Tuchel, the former Chelsea manager, has reportedly tried to take out an injunction to stop his ex-wife from revealing the mysterious off-field reasons he was sacked by the club.
Tuchel was dismissed by Chelsea on Tuesday, just days after leading the club to their first Champions League final in eight years. The German had been in charge for just 18 months, but his tenure was brought to an abrupt end following a run of poor results in the Premier League.
The exact reasons for Tuchel’s sacking remain unclear, but reports have suggested that there were off-field issues at play. According to The Sun, Tuchel’s ex-wife, Katharina, was set to reveal the details of the off-field issues that led to his dismissal.
In response, Tuchel reportedly attempted to take out an injunction to prevent Katharina from speaking out. However, the injunction was denied by a court in Germany, meaning that Katharina is now free to speak out about the reasons behind Tuchel’s sacking.
It is not yet known what the off-field issues were, but it is believed that they were related to Tuchel’s personal life. The German had been married to Katharina since 2011, but the couple divorced in 2018.
Tuchel’s sacking has come as a shock to many, as he had been widely praised for his work at Chelsea. The German had led the club to the Champions League final, as well as a top-four finish in the Premier League.
However, it appears that there were off-field issues that the club were not willing to overlook. It remains to be seen what Katharina will reveal about the reasons behind Tuchel’s sacking, but it could shed some light on the mysterious circumstances surrounding his departure.
