Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has opened up on his meeting with the club’s new owner Todd Boehly for the first time at Cobham last week.
Tuchel in a statement revealed the nature of their first meeting as he said it was brief while stating that a strong ambition for the club’s success will be maintained.
The report revealed that Boehly was at Cobham during the build-up to Chelsea FA Cup final vs Liverpool.
Speaking Tuchel said, ‘We had lunch together but it was in a room with everybody like players and staff.’
‘It was friendly and open, a very informal meeting over lunch for half an hour or 40 minutes.
‘We didn’t go into details. It was not the moment, only to get a feeling and say hello. We talked more about baseball but when the moment is right, we will share our opinions in more detail in the next weeks.
‘He paid some money so I don’t think he’s keen to drop the ambition. That would be a big surprise. I am sure that he is ambitious to build a competitive Chelsea for the highest level.’
Aside from Tuchel, Boehly also met Chelsea Women’s head coach Emma Hayes and head of youth development Neil Bath.
