Just days after divorcing his wife of 13 years, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was seen having fun with his new love.
The German coach has reportedly been vacationing in Sardinia with his new Brazilian partner, Natalie Max, before the start of the new season.
A judge at London’s High Court recently granted the 48-year-old, who had been married to journalist Sissi Tuchel for 13 years, a divorce.
The 35-year-old Ms Max and the Blues manager were spotted together on a boat at the Mediterranean island where they held hands and laughed while swimming in the water. During a brief intermission between his team’s tour of the United States, which finished on Sunday, and a friendly match against Italian team Udinese tomorrow, he traveled there with the company owner.
According to the Sun, the couple, who each have two daughters, is residing in a villa that costs £20,000 per night.
They appeared to be very much in love, a vacationer told the newspaper. Natalie once wrapped her hand around his neck and leant in for a kiss.
They relaxed on the beach, went swimming, ate lunch at the hotel’s restaurant, and then boarded a boat to the island of Caprera.
On Wednesday, July 20, Mr. Justice Mostyn of the High Court in London granted a divorce to the former manager of Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund after concluding that the marriage could not be saved.
According to a person who spoke to the Mail on Sunday, Mrs. Tuchel filed for divorce at the end of March, citing irreconcilable differences. Despite their efforts to stay together, “in the end there was no other option,” the source added.
They stated that it was “extremely heartbreaking” and that now everything revolved around making sure their girls came first.
Seven months after her husband arrived in the country after being hired by Chelsea, Mrs. Tuchel relocated there in August of last year.
He had initially slept in a motel close to the club’s practice facility in Cobham, Surrey.
The Chelsea manager, who reputedly earns £7 million year, is thought to have come to an agreement with his ex-wife.
