Thomas Tuchel declared himself a big fan of Serena Williams and Lewis Hamilton after the superstar pair joined a consortium bidding to buy Chelsea.

British motorsport star Hamilton, 37, has earned nearly $500million in his Formula One career, while American tennis great Williams has also acquired major wealth while landing 23 grand slam singles titles.

They will reportedly be chipping in $10m each to Martin Broughton’s consortium and have been “constantly in touch”, Hamilton said, about the prospect of being part of a successful quest to acquire the Premier League club.

Hamilton, despite being an Arsenal fan, said businessman Broughton’s ambitions for Chelsea were “incredibly exciting, and very much aligned with my values”.

Chelsea head coach Tuchel said on Friday: “I just heard it, I just got a briefing and heard it.

“I can tell you no more than I’m a big admirer of both of them. They are fantastic personalities on the court and the racetrack.

“They are outstanding sports figures in what they do, for which they have my biggest respect, but I have absolutely no insight in the role they’re playing.”

Chelsea’s long-time owner Roman Abramovich, who has been sanctioned by the United Kingdom government following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, announced his intentions to sell the Premier League club earlier in March.
