Chelsea’s Champions League glory means a special year for Tuchel.



Asked prospective questions about the situation in his contract after controlling for Chelsea’s second Champions League victory with Saturday’s win over Manchester City, head coach Thomas Tuchel gave an unexpected answer.

“I’m not even 100 percent sure. But maybe I have a new contract with that victory!” he said with a smile. “My manager said something about that, but I don’t know, let’s see.”

Tuchel’s instincts were correct.

A source told The Athletic that the deal that brought him to Chelsea at the end of January included an automatic extension clause in case he could win the Champions League. He managed it after four months.
