Reigning European champions, Chelsea have extended the contract of Thomas Tuchel by two years after leading the team to their second Champions League last month.
Thomas Tuchel, who took the job following the sack of Frank Lampard in January, led the team to the FA Cup final and a Champions League spot ahead of the new season.
Chelsea confirmed Thomas Tuchel’s contract via a statement on the club’s official website.
“Chelsea Football Club is very happy to confirm that, following our triumph in the Champions League, Thomas Tuchel’s contract has been extended by two years, as agreed when he joined the Club.”
On his contract extension, 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.”
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia commended Tuchel for the brilliant feat he achieved for the club within the short period he arrived at the club.
“When Thomas joined us in January there was still so much to play for domestically and in Europe. He slotted in seamlessly and immediately became an integral part of the Chelsea family.
‘Returning us to the top four in the Premier League was crucial, and we could not be happier with our success in the Champions League which crowned a remarkable season at Chelsea.
‘We are extremely pleased therefore to retain Thomas for a further two years, and look forward to more achievements in the coming seasons.’
In 30 games, Thomas Tuchel led Chelsea to 19 victories, 5 defeats with 16 goals conceded.
The German will now remain at the club until June 2024.
