‘I want them to be brave” – Thomas Tuchel tells Chelsea Player ahead of Champions League Final



Thomas Tuchel has urged his his side to be ‘brave’ as they prepare to face Manchester City in Saturday nights Champions League final.

The German has overseen an impressive turnaround in fortunes since taking over at Chelsea in January, steering the club to a top four finish and the Champions League final.

This weekend’s fixture in Porto will see the west London side come up against Premier League champions, Manchester City, a side they have beaten twice in the last six weeks.

Pep Guardiola is renown for his tactical tweaks – particularly in high profile Champions League games – and while Tuchel admits he doesn’t quite know how the Catalan will send his side out, he has urged his side to be ‘brave’ on the bal.

“I don’t know what to expect we have to wait I’m not in Pep Guardiola’s head or the meetings so I don’t know what he thinks or predicts.
