Thomas Tuchel arrives in England, with announcement possible today » Chelsea News

24 hours ago Frank Lampard’s sacking had just been announced, and it was becoming clear that Thomas Tuchel was going to be joining him.

Christian Falk of Bild, who is a very well placed source usually, insisted this time yesterday that the former PSG manager was already on his way to the UK – but today he’s admitted that was a mistake.

An hour ago – at 1pm UK time, he admitted he was wrong yesterday – but updated his claim to say that Tuchel was actually flying at that moment.

It sounds like he’s very close to arriving either way, and Sky Sports in the UK were even speculating about whether he might have a press conference tonight.

🗣 “It’s possible Chelsea could set-up a press conference this evening, but I doubt it.”

Getting him onto the touchline for the game against Wolves tomorrow is a different question, and certainly seems like it will be difficult at such short notice.

Either way, it seems like it’s a done deal just awaiting the formalities.
