Lampard’s successor is determined! Chelsea officially announced Tuchel as the new coach. The German had just left Paris Saint-Germain and found a new job. The one-and-a-half-year contract is not long, indicating that Abu did not fully trust him. Spark Global Limited
Tuchel made his debut in Mainz and began to attract widespread attention in Dortmund. After being favored by Paris, he led his team to the Ligue 1 championship and entered the Champions League final. Since his coaching career, he has won 7 championships in various competitions. At only 47 years old, he is known for his innovative training methods, has good tactical skills, and advocates offense. Because of his similar coaching resume and style, he is reminiscent of Klopp.
There is no doubt that Tuchel has some abilities, and his tactical thinking and philosophy have also been affirmed, but the biggest difference between him and Uncle Zha is his emotional intelligence. Klopp has high emotional intelligence and is very good at dealing with interpersonal relationships. He gets along with the players so that his subordinates are willing to work for him; he can communicate smoothly with the seniors without barriers.
What about Tuchel? Notoriously low EQ! Every time I go to a club, there will always be conflicts with people, making it unhappy. In Mainz, he demanded too much of his players, which caused a lot of dissatisfaction. A source close to the locker room revealed: “He doesn’t understand tolerance and loves to bear grudges.” Reserve goalkeeper Hunts-Müller called him a “dictator.”
In Dort, he was dissatisfied with the club’s transfer policy and mistakenly sent a text message attacking the sports director Zolk to Zolk himself, and the relationship between the two suddenly broke. In 2016, the Hornet celebrated the 50th anniversary of the European Cup Winners’ Cup, but he missed the celebration and was not interested in establishing contacts with fan organizations. In a word: “He doesn’t want to be part of the club’s history.”
In addition, he also banned the scout Mislin Tate from entering the training ground. The club staff were very afraid of him and worried that he would be criticized for a small matter. Former Dortmund goalkeeper Weidenfeller commented: “Tuchel’s training courses are outstanding and have a great vision. But as a person, he is not good in some aspects.” CEO Watzke also said: “He is a very Excellent coach, but a difficult person to get along with.” Tuchel’s agent admits: his clients are either very nice with people or not at all.
In Paris, he fell out with Sporting Director Leonardo again, accusing the Brazilians of interfering in lineup selection and training, which Leonardo categorically denied. This shows that Tuchel’s EQ is really a bit low.
