Bayern Munich head coach, Hansi Flick, has backed Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel to go far in the Champions League campaign under their new manager. Flicks believe in the present job of the team.
Recall Chelsea sacked Frank Lampard a few weeks ago and replaced with Thomas Tuchel who appears to have started on a good note in the league. Tuchel has remain undefeated in the last five (5) matches.
Recall also Chelsea finished top of their Champions League group under Frank Lampard, who was sacked in January and was replaced by Tuchel, a former Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund manager.
The West London club, who are yet to suffer a defeat under Tuchel, will face La Liga leaders, Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last-16 tie next week.
However, Atletico Madrid appears to have had poor run of form lately in their La liga campaign, just yesterday Atletico drew with Levante which reduces the huge point difference six (6).
“Chelsea have massive potential both in terms of quality and quantity,” Flick told France Football.
“It is a young team with a lot of talent. They can go far in the Champions League this season.
“Thomas [Tuchel] has gained experience at PSG that will benefit him at Chelsea. He’s ready for this challenge.”
