Thomas Tuchel signs a two-year contract extension at Chelsea on the back of Champions League triumph.
Tuchel has signed a two-year contract extension at Chelsea with a man who was initially handed an 18-month deal at Stamford Bridge. The German replaced Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge in January.
Chelsea under Tuchel also reached the FA Cup final, but silverware was captured two weeks later when they defeated Manchester City in the Champions League final in Porto.
Speaking to Chelsea’s official website, Tuchel said: ‘I cannot imagine a better occasion for a contract renewal. I am grateful for the experience and very happy to stay part of the Chelsea family.
“There is far more to come, and we are looking forward to our next steps with ambition and much anticipation,” said Tuchel.
Blues director Marina Granovskaia said: “When Thomas joined us in January, there was still so much to play for domestically and in Europe. He slotted in seamlessly and immediately became an integral part of the Chelsea family.
“We are obviously extremely pleased therefore to retain Thomas for a further two years and look forward to more achievements in the coming seasons.”
In Tuchel’s 30 games in charge, there have been 19 victories and only five defeats, with just 16 goals conceded.
In addition to securing Champions League football for next season, on Saturday, Tuchel became the first manager to reach back-to-back Champions League finals with two different clubs.
