Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel signs new Chelsea contract until 2024
Tuchel agreed on an 18-month contract when he joined Chelsea in January
but has now pledged his long-term future at Stamford Bridge following the Champions
League victory over Manchester City.
Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard this season – and guided Chelsea to European
glory against Manchester City in Porto.
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.”
Tuchel signed an 18-month deal in January when he replaced the axed Lampard.
And the ex-PSG boss feared the Blues hierarchy didn’t trust him to be the right man
long term. But he’s won over everyone at the club after delivering a second European
Cup under Roman Abramovich.
Recalling his move to Chelsea earlier this year, he told BT Sport: “It was all done in 72
hours. At first I didn’t like it, I thought ‘maybe they don’t trust me?’
“‘I have to leave my country, maybe leave my family behind and they are many points
behind the fourth spot’.
