Thomas Tuchel is close to signing a new contract after leading Chelsea to Champions League glory with a 1-0 win over Manchester City in the final at the Estádio do Dragao on Saturday.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel hinted that he will be signing a new contract as the Blues registered a 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Champions League final in Porto.
Tuchel lost the Champions League finalist last season before being fired by Paris Saint-Germain in December 2020. And six months later he stands as a Champions League winner with Chelsea. The German got the better of City’s Pep Guardiola for the third time this season with a masterful tactical game plan that his team executed to perfection.
Tuchel said he was hungry for more after delivering the Champions League just four months after taking charge with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City on Saturday.
“I am not even 100% sure maybe I have already a new contract now,” Tuchel said.
“My manager said something about it. Let’s check this first. I spoke to the owner right now on the pitch. It was the best moment for the first meeting. It can only get worse! We will speak tomorrow. We will speak later. I will stay hungry for the next title. My desire is for more victories and to grow as a coach. It would be nice to meet him a bit closer. We are in contact. Now it’s nice to meet him.”
After winning the UCL trophy, Tuchel was plotting more silverware for a young team that has emerged as the most likely challengers to City’s domestic dominance.
“It’s about the next one,” Tuchel said. “It is the time to celebrate for a few days and to let it sink in. Nobody wants to rest. I want the next one and I want the next success and the next title. I want to be a part of it and I demand to be a part of it. Make no mistake.
“It’s a huge experience and a huge success. We all will profit from that experience. We will use it to stay hungry and to grow and evolve. It;’s a huge step to arrive in the final and an even bigger one to fight your way through. Manchester City was a strong opponent. We knew it was a top-level performance. We needed a strong bond today to win this match.”
