Chelsea Twitter suggests "Tuchel for PM" following Boris Johnson resignation

Chelsea's official Twitter page has suggested Thomas Tuchel should replace outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The babbling Conservative PM, 58, has been persuaded to step down from his role as leader of the party following the resignations of more than 50 Tory MPs, including Sajad Javid, the ex-Health Secretary, and Rishi Sunak, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, from his cabinet.

Despite offering his resignation, Mr. Johnson is expected to continue as acting PM until the autumn whilst the Conservatives conduct a leadership race for his successor. Though four miles down the road, Chelsea Football Club believe they have the right man for the job.

Following news of Mr Johnson's impending resignation, the Blues tweeted "it's time" alongside a photo of a fan banner donning "Tuchel for PM" which was displayed during the behind-closed-doors 2020/21 campaign.

The German boss is certainly a popular figure in west London having guided the club to a second-ever Champions League crown and could be a potential shoo-in for the Chelsea and Fulham seat at the next general election – if he were to opt for a stark career change.

The seat has been held by Conservative MP Greg Hands since its inception in 2010, meaning Tuchel would stand a good chance of being sworn into the house of commons, and succeeding Bojo, were he to stand as a Tory candidate.

And it seems Tuchel already has the backing of the Chelsea faithful for his next venture. "Sounds good to me," replied one fan to the club's tongue-in-cheek Twitter post. "The guy knows how to fill a cabinet," quipped a second.

"Timo Werner – Secretary of State for Being Offside," joked a third supporter in response. Whilst a fourth believes he'd have the trains sorted in next to no time: "Considering how well Germany is run in particular public transport, wouldn't be a bad idea."
