We have often seen situations of player power transpire at big clubs like Chelsea over recent years, and it often only ends up one way, with the manager getting sacked.
They will lose certain key players in the dressing room for whatever the reason, and things will get to a point of no return for the manager.
When Romelu Lukaku did his interview with Sky Italy recently and the fallout that followed, Thomas Tuchel took a tough approach and dropped him immediately, whilst then decided with the club to fine Lukaku after holding meetings.
These kind of situations can often bubble up and have a negative effect on the manager, the players, and the board.
But after all this, Roman Abramovich is backing Tuchel over Lukaku this time, according to The Telegraph, which really does say a lot.
The club putting the manager first over player frustrations is a great sign for now and for the future.
