Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits he’s yet to hear from owner Roman Abramovich about his plans to sell the club.
Abramovich announced he was selling Chelsea after 19 years at the helm of the Stamford Bridge club on Wednesday in a decision that rocked football.
The Russian tycoon wants around £3.5 billion for the club, and has several bids on the table, with American tycoon Todd Boehly in pole position after teaming up with Swiss businessman Hansjorg Wyss, and Turkish billionaire Muhsin Bayrack also claiming to be in talks.
But Tuchel, whose side face Burnley at Turf Moor today, has not spoken to Abramovich since his decision.
The German said: “I was not in direct contact with the owner, which is not a surprising thing because we have not had so much contact directly.
“My contact is always Petr Cech and Marina Granovskaia, on a very regular basis, which is until now always excellent.
“Chelsea was always a Roman Abramovich club in my point of view, and was run by a compassionate and committed owner.
“This is so new, and such a big change of course, that I’m not even sure how I feel about it. I’m very happy to come here to work, because on a daily basis, once we are in the building there is not a big change.
“The owner was not here for lunch and not here for meetings, not here for training – so this does actually at the moment look very normal. It gives everybody a good feeling.”
