For the first time since taking over the club’s coaching role six months ago, Thomas Tuchel met with Chelsea owner yesterday in an electrifying moment after their victory against Manchester City. This moment is believed to influence quick decisions in the interest of the club.
Chelsea has no doubt turned a season of turmoil into the ultimate triumph as Kai Havertz’s cool finish sunk Manchester City 1-0 to secure Champions League glory in Porto.
After the meeting with Chelsea owner Abramovich, Thomas Tuchel said, “I’m not 100 per cent sure, but maybe I have already a new contract with that win. I spoke to the owner (Roman Abramovich) right now on the pitch, which was the best moment for a first meeting!”
But the German revealed following his first meeting with Abramovich on the pitch at the Estadio do Dragao that a new contract is in the offing.
He further said, “My manager said something about it. I did not know, but let’s check this first. I spoke to the owner (Roman Abramovich) right now on the pitch, which was the best moment for a first meeting!
“…Or the worst as from now on, it can only get worse! We will speak tomorrow, we will speak later, but I’m looking forward to this.
“I can assure him that I will stay hungry, that I want the next title and I feel absolutely happy as a part of a really ambitious club and a strong part of a really strong group that suits my beliefs and suits my passion about football at the moment perfectly. My desire is to go for more victories and my desire is to grow as a coach. My desire is to push the group from the first day of the next season to the limit.
Do you think Thomas Tuchel expressly deserve a contract extension?
