Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea sacking date revealed based on average life expectancy of a Blues boss under Abramovich rule

CHELSEA will sack Thomas Tuchel in May 2022, based on the average time managers last under Roman Abramovich.

The Blues are set to appoint the German to replace axed Frank Lampard and - according to data revealed by SunSport - he can expect the sack after 72 games in charge.

Abramovich, 54, bought Chelsea in 2003 and has had 16 managers including Lampard in that time.

That figure also includes interim and caretaker bosses.

Billionaire Abramovich sacked his latest boss Lampard on Monday and former Paris Saint-Germain gaffer Tuchel is in line to replace him.

The average spell in charge under the Russian is 72 competitive games in charge.

Jose Mourinho has managed the most over two spells with 321 matches.

Caretaker bosses Steve Holland and Ray Wilkins took charge for just a game each with Guus Hiddink twice taking the reins as interim manager notching 49 matches in total.

Lampard managed 84 games during his 18-month spell which puts him fourth in the list behind Carlo Ancelotti (109) and Antonio Conte (106).

Chelsea are at the half way stage of this season's Premier League and are still in the FA Cup.


So if Tuchel takes charge before Wolves' visit to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, he will manage 19 League games until the end of the season.

With a tough Champions League draw against Atletico Madrid and a maximum of four FA Cup games left it is fair to predict he may manage six more cup games which gives him a total of 25 at the end of the season.

That leaves him 47 more games to manage in the 2021-22 season before he is sacked which SunSport has predicted will take him to May 2022.
