UCL: What I Told Chelsea Players Before Final Match – Thomas Tuchel

Published

Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel has revealed he sensed his team would come out victorious before the Champions League final on Saturday.

The German coach had guided Paris Saint-Germain to last year’s Champions League final, where they lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich.

“You know I was so grateful to arrive a second time (in the final after doing so with PSG last year) but this felt different. I told people before somehow it was,” Tuchel told BT Sport.

Paying tribute to his “unbelievable” Tuchel said;

“It was an incredibly tough fight, what a fight. Today they were determined to win this. We wanted to be the stone in their (City’s) shoe.

“I told everyone to step up and to be more brave with the ball.

“Kai was strong and delivered again. He has great heart.”

Tuchel was sacked in December 2020 but was almost immediately hired by Chelsea following the London-based club parting ways with Frank Lampard.

A Kai Havertz goal was enough to hand Chelsea their second UEFA Champions League trophy in Porto.
