Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel is set to sign a new contract after guiding the Blues to claim their second UEFA Champions League trophy.
Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard at the end of January with the Blues in 9th place on the league table and was handed an 18-month contract. Tuchel guided the Blues to a top-four finish, an FA Cup final and the UEFA Champions League final. Though the Londoners lost to Leicester City in the FA Cup final, they beat Manchester City on Saturday to win their second UEFA Champions League trophy after Kai Havertz scored the only goal of the game in the 1st half.
“I spoke to the owner right now on the pitch. It was the best moment for our first meeting, or the worst because from now on, things can only get worse. We will speak tomorrow and I am looking forward to it. I can assure him I will stay hungry. I want the next title and I feel absolutely happy. I feel part of a really ambitious club and strong group”, Tuchel said as he celebrated his Champions League triumph.
Since taking charge of Chelsea at the end of January, Thomas Tuchel has managed 30 games and has recorded 19 victories, 5 defeats and 6 draws. 38 goals have been scored, 16 goals conceded and 19 clean sheets have also been recorded.
