Thomas Tuchel has been announced as Chelsea’s new manager after the sacking of Frank Lampard on Monday. Tuchel has signed an 18-month contract that has an option to extend.
“Thomas Tuchel has been appointed as the new Chelsea Head Coach. He moves to Stamford Bridge following a two-and-a-half year spell at French champions Paris Saint-Germain, which came to an end last month,” Chelsea said in a statement.
“He will be the first German to manage Chelsea and arrives having guided PSG (Paris Saint-Germain) to four major honours and the Champions League final during his time in the French capital.
“Prior to that, he spent seven seasons coaching in the Bundesliga, first with Mainz, where he led them into the Europa League, and then a successful period with Borussia Dortmund where he won the German Cup.
“At Chelsea, he will be reunited with Christian Pulisic and Thiago Silva who he coached during his spells in Dortmund and Paris respectively.”
