‘Very special’ – pundit likens Chelsea boss Tuchel to Mourinho

Andy Townsend has compared “very special” Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel to Blues legend Jose Mourinho.

Tuchel joined the Stamford Bridge club in January, winning the Champions League and guiding them from ninth in the Premier League to fourth last term.

They have started the 2021/22 season in fine form, most recently .



struggled in the opening 45 minutes, but Tuchel introduced N’Golo Kante at half-time with the game goalless, flipping the game on its head.

And Townsend – a former Blue – has likened Tuchel’s impact to that of ex-Chelsea boss Mourinho.

“There’s a lot to admire about the way that Thomas Tuchel works,” .

“I was just thinking as I came to the studio, when Jose first arrived at Chelsea, he kind of shook the world.

“He grabbed them by the scruff of the neck and hauled them up, got them rubbing shoulders with the best and taking Fergie on when he’s in his pomp.

“Come January, if he’s got Chelsea where they are today – top of the pile – with a Champions League under his belt, he also is doing something very very special.

“I know he’s inherited some tremendous players, but a of them – Rudiger – he was on his way out and the boxes were officially coming out of the loft.

“With Azpi [Cesar Azpilicueta], it looked like had wrestled that shirt off him.

“Marcos Alonso is so transformed at the moment he’s one of their best attacking players!”

Chelsea have already beaten Arsenal and Spurs away from home, and picked up a draw at Anfield against Liverpool – despite playing the second 45 with ten men.

Next up in the Premier League for the west Londoners is at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Saturday’s encounter is the biggest match of the domestic season so far for either club and could have a big effect on what promises to be an extremely tight title race.

Wenger reveals he was offered England job in 2016

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he was offered the England national team managerial role in 2016.

The Frenchman left the Gunners in 2018 after 22 years in charge of the Premier League giants.

After leaving he then took on the role of FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development.



The 71-year-old has recently received criticism for his.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp slammed the plans, saying: “There is no other sport in the world with such a relentless calendar. No physical sport. There are more demanding sports like athletics and marathons but they don’t run 20 or 30 or 40 a year.

“We all know why it’s happening. Whatever people say that it’s about giving different countries opportunities, in the end it’s all about money, that’s how it is.”

And Wenger himself has told he could have managed England at the 2018 World Cup.

After Roy Hodgson left his Three Lions managerial role in 2016, the Arsenal legend was offered the job, he has confirmed.

When asked if 2016 was the last time the Football Association came calling, he said: “Yes, I think so.”

Wenger also praised current manager , saying he “likes” the 51-year-old.

Elsewhere, Arsenal academy boss Per Mertesacker doubts the club have the quality to mount a serious challenge for the top four positions this season.

, Mertesacker said: “Probably not [top four this season], that is what I’ve learnt. I’m looking more long-term, Edu needs to look long-term sometimes, we need to build a foundation for the next three or four years. Me in the academy, I live in ten year cycles.

“Mikel needs to address the here and now, the next games are the most important for us. I’m going to get behind the team because they need us to create that positivity and energy around the whole training ground.’”
