“I know about the timescale but I don’t know anything about the offers,” Thomas Tuchel said when asked about the Chelsea takeover, as quoted by SI.
“I don’t know how many offers if they are serious or who they are from. I am not so much interested in the details of the process. I know the guidelines of the process.
“This is enough for me. When it gets crucial and decisive then it is enough that I know it.
“You know as much as me. I maybe know a few hours before. The offers are in now and the board tries to find a decision with the government as soon as possible.”
“The responsibility and the attitude come with what you sign up for. If you sign up for Chelsea, you sign up for winning and you sign up for being competitive. This is what you have to deal with.”
Last Friday marked the deadline for bids. On Monday, Raine Group, a company overseeing the takeover, supposedly plans to determine three or four best offers and send rejection letters to the remaining ones.
It was previously reported that the sale process should be over by the end of March.
