Opinion: Beyond Some Notable Wins, Chelsea Manager, Thomas Tuchel, Is One Of The Overrated Coaches

Thomas Tuchel has joined the league of avalanche of coaches that have managed Chelsea. Popularly known as the "German tactician", Tuchel has registered himself as a formidable coach in the English Premiere League and across Europe.

Beyond what is seen at the periphery, which is winning a handful of matches, Thomas Tuchel is extreme overrated.

Well, this is the Chelsea culture and their fans seem to adhere to it. When it was Villas-Boas, he was praised as the best in Europe. When it was Jose Mourinho, he was termed "the special one". Antonio Conte was nicknamed "team crusher". This has been the culture. Chelsea management and fans usually overrate their coaches.

This is not different in the case of Thomas Tuchel.

You may need to be reminded that Tuchel is not the first coach to pick Chelsea FC from a difficult position to win a trophy. Remember, this is the standard in Chelsea.

Great coaches in the EPL have shown impeccable tactical prowess, and they are deserved to be nicknamed "tactical giants". One may wonder, what tactical ingenuity has Thomas Tuchel shown to the wold of football since he took over Chelsea.

Have you considered the massive and tactical leadership skills of Liverpool manager, Jorgen Klopp, Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola? Have you checked what is happening in Atletitico Madrid under the management of Diego Simione?

So many have ignorantly argued that Tuchel is building a team no one may wish to encounter.

Are you aware that Tuchel never invented any special formation?

He has prominently relied on the 4-5-1 formation. When he attempted to switch to 4-4-2, Chelsea lost two matches consecutively. What is the ingenuity in it? Almost every coach use the same approach to win games.

Let it be known that Tuchel is fast approaching his last days at the Stamford Bridge. The signs are glaring.

In my opinion, Thomas Tuchel is extensively overrated. He has not shown any tactical or managerial ingenuity.
