The marriage of Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has ended, according to a report on Daily Mail.
Thomas Tuchel’s wife, Sissi began divorce proceedings last week, with friends saying that ‘all avenues are exhausted’ when it comes to hopes of a reconciliation.
“Sissi and Thomas have tried to avoid splitting but in the end there was no other way,” a source told Daily Mail.
“It is very sad and now it is all about making sure their daughters are the top priority. Papers were lodged last week to get the divorce under way.”
Just ten months ago, Mrs Tuchel was seen running across the pitch at Porto’s Estadio do Dragao before leaping into her husband’s arms after Chelsea secured a 1-0 Champions League victory over Manchester City.
Tuchel, who is reportedly paid £7million a year, now faces a multi-million-pound divorce deal. His wife gave up her job at the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung to bring up their family, so may be entitled to a slice of his future earnings as well as up to half of his current fortune. Sources say the couple are determined to keep the divorce amicable.
