The German manager was spotted at Cochin International Airport

Thomas Tuchel was spotted at Cochin International Airport, Kerala, India, weeks after his dismissal from Chelsea as head coach. Tuchel was sacked by the new Chelsae owner Todd Boehly after a bad run of games earlier this season.

The German manager led the blues to a UEFA Champions League triumph in his first season at the club after taking over from Frank Lampard midway through the 2020-21 season.

The German manager was spotted at arriving at the Kerala airport by some Indian Chelsea fans. Tuchel took time to take pictures with his Indian fans and the pictures were flooded on Indian football twitter throughout the day.

While many fans joked that the manager was in India to take over as the new ATK Mohun Bagan head coach. While some even joked around that the former Chelsea manager was here to take over as the new head coach for the Indian national football team. Finally, Here we look at the reason why the German manager is in India?

Why is Tuchel in India?

Sources have told KhelNow that the German manager is here for an Ayurvedic treatment. Ayurveda is an alternative medicine system with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent. The theory and practice of Ayurveda is pseudoscientific.

Tuchel has to retire at just 25 in his playing career due to a chronic knee cartilage injury. The manager was also seen with a moon boot on his foot during PSG‘s run to the UEFA Champions League final in the 2019-20 season. This was after he sprained and fractured his ankle. But the Ayurvedic treatment isn’t linked to any foot injury. But it is liked with respect to his digestive system and his spine.
