Gary Neville believes Chelsea will replace Thomas Tuchel with a new manager within two years despite early success and unbeaten run so far.
Everything seems rosy in Tuchel’s first month at Stamford Bridge so far.
Chelsea remain unbeaten for eight consecutive games under the new manager, with an impressive defensive record of six clean-sheets.
But even Tuchel himself knows that at Chelsea, no manager is safe.
That is the reason why he stopped worrying about his relatively short, 18-month contract, as he explained in his interview with BT Sport.
Tuchel said he is convinced about himself, and if the Chelsea higher-ups like what he is doing, they will make him stay.
Neville, however, clearly doesn’t share Tuchel’s optimistic view.
“I think he [Tuchel] has probably invigorated them with new ideas, new training sessions, a new voice, and he’s got a big presence, having managed at PSG and [Borussia] Dortmund with success,” he told Webby & O’Neill’s YouTube channel.
“So he’s got something about him.
“I think if you look at the players there [at Chelsea], they have really good players.
“Players thrive on a new idea — and then they get bored, then they’ll kick him out and bring in someone else.
“And you’ll be asking the same question again in two years.
“Particularly at Chelsea, it’s always 18 months or two years, we know what happens there.
“I think he will make them [Chelsea players] better, he will improve them.
“[But] Chelsea don’t give you two or three years you need to be successful and to prove your idea, they want results straight away.”
It is hard to argue that the model has been successful.
Even many Chelsea fans have come to terms with not getting too attached to the managers.
Who knows when or if the cycle will end?
But if the likes of Carlo Ancelotti, Jose Mourinho, and Antonio Conte were sacked within a year after winning the Premier League, it is safe to say that it is not going to happen anytime soon.
