Thomas Tuchel first words when he signed two year contract with Chelsea



Thomas Tuchel has said he “cannot imagine a better occasion” after a two-year extension to his contract was triggered on Friday afternoon.

After losing just five of his 30 games in charge, securing a top four finish at the end of the Premier League season and then scooping an historic Champions League crown last week, the former PSG manager has seen an extension that was inserted into his initial 18-month deal activated.

Tuchel joined the club in late January after Roma Abramovich pulled the trigger on Frank Lampard with Chelsea having fallen from the top of the standings in the league down to ninth.
