German tactician Thomas Tuchel was appointed as Chelsea boss on Tuesday following the dismissal of Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss on Monday morning.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia has revealed sacking club legend Lampard wasn’t an easy decision.
She also believes the club have made the right appointment in hiring Tuchel because he is one of Europe’s best coaches.
She said: “It is never easy to change Head Coach in the middle of the season.
“But we are very happy to secure one of Europe’s best coaches in Thomas Tuchel.
“There is still much to play for and much to achieve, this season and beyond.
“We welcome Thomas to the Club.”
