Thomas Tuchel may be ‘forced to depart UK’ due to a visa limbo caused by his axing by Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel could reportedly be compelled to leave the United Kingdom due to his uncertain visa status.

The then-owner Roman Abramovich hired the German in 2021, and he won the Champions League in his first season.

Despite authorising more than £250 million in summer investment, new manager Todd Boehly decided to fire Thomas Tuchel barely weeks into the new season.

While new manager Graham Potter uses the international break to continue preparations for his first Premier League game, Tuchel’s situation is different.

According to recent reports, the 49-year-old is still seeking clarification on when he may be obliged to depart the United Kingdom.

According to The Telegraph, Tuchel entered the nation on a post-Brexit Governing Body Endorsement visa and may have only 90 days to remain in the country following his dismissal.

According to the same source, he was one of the first foreign managers to join a Premier League side following the implementation of post-Brexit regulations.

“We will act in accordance with UK rules and adapt all future plans,” a representative for Tuchel told The Telegraph. “Final decisions are not made yet.”

The manager continues to reside in the United Kingdom while his children attend school in Surrey, and he is reportedly content in the United Kingdom.

At the time of writing, neither the Home Office nor the Football Association had offered any additional information regarding his predicament.

“This is one of the most difficult statements I have ever had to write – and it is one which I hoped I would not need to do for many years,” Tuchel wrote in his first statement after being sacked by the Blues. “I am devastated that my time at Chelsea has come to an end.

“This is a club where I felt at home, both professionally and personally. Thank you so much to all the staff, the players and the supporters for making me feel very welcome from the start.

“The pride and joy I felt at helping the team to win the Champions League and the Club World Cup will stay with me forever. I am honoured to have been a part of this club’s history and the memories of the last 19 months will always have a special place in my heart.”

In October, the London team will play a derby away at Crystal Palace for their debut league match. 

After accumulating 10 points in six games under Tuchel’s leadership, they are seventh in the table, three points behind Potter’s former club Brighton in fourth place.
