Thomas Tuchel believes it will not be hard for the Chelsea hierarchy to regain the trust of supporters after the European Super League fiasco because they will appreciate what owner Roman Abramovich has done to make the club what it is.
Chelsea were due to be one of the founder members of the controversial breakaway competition which collapsed after a huge backlash from fans, authorities and players.
Supporter protests were especially key in the turnaround, with Chelsea’s coming out in force on Tuesday ahead of their goalless draw against Brighton.

Manager Tuchel said: ‘No [it won’t be hard to regain trust] because I think that the people and the fans know very, very much that it’s also the credit from the owners who improve their clubs and made big strong clubs and build a strong and maybe the most competitive league in the world so I think they appreciate that very, very well.
‘And I think that the people can read very clearly and can divide things from another and they express their opinion on this decision.

‘They were absolutely not happy, the fans and supporters obviously, but I don’t think it affects in general the opinion on what for example the owner did for this club, for the community, for the women’s team, the academy and the first team. It’s a lot, a lot of positive things.’
Unlike Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, Tuchel confirmed he has not received an apology from his owner but said: ‘Nobody needs to apologise and I have not spoken to the owner since I arrived which is absolutely not a problem.
‘I was in dialogue with the club before and after the [Brighton] match so I was informed that we were pulling out and that was pretty much all I needed to prepare the next match against West Ham.’
