THIS is the hilarious moment Thomas Tuchel is destroyed by new Chelsea signing Raheem Sterling at table tennis.

That’s after the ace warned his new boss that he’s UNBEATABLE at the game.


The £50million signing from Manchester City is set to play a key role for the Blues this season.

But Sterling, 27, hides a secret talent for another sport – table tennis.

The four-time Premier League winner became king of the ping pong table during Chelsea’s pre-season tour of the USA.

And Sterling proved a point to new boss Tuchel ahead of his debut in Thursday’s penalty shoot-out defeat to Charlotte FC.

In a video posted by Chelsea, Sterling said: “I’d say my go-to hobby outside of football has to be ping pong. Get to somewhere there’s a table and play for hours.”

The next clip showed the squad having a game, with Trevoh Chalobah beating Kenedy as Tuchel joked: “Now Raheem plays for the first time in his life.”

Sterling responded: “I promise you, I promise you, no-one here will beat me.”

This caused Tuchel to shake his head in disbelief while saying: “No, no, no.”

Sterling then picked up a paddle before quickly dispatching reigning champ Chalobah.

The England winger received roars and cheers from watching teammates as Tuchel stepped up to the plate.

The pair were well-matched in the opening seconds before Sterling turned up the heat.

He put Tuchel on the back-foot with a clever shot before smashing a final effort clean across the table.

Tuchel tried to reach the ball but could not make it, resulting in jubilant celebrations from Sterling.

Tuchel then threw down his paddle while laughing, and shouted: “Not against Raheem! Not against Raheem! Oh please say!”

Fans were certainly impressed with Sterling's efforts, as one said: "Raheem is very good, he knocks out everyone."
