Newly appointed Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has revealed his desires to compete in the most exciting league in football.
The German signed an 18-month contract with the possibility of an extension and will reunite with his former players Thiago Silva and Christian Pulisic at Paris Saint German (PSG) and Borussia Dortmund respectively.
He told the clubs official website: ‘I would like to thank Chelsea FC for their confidence in me and my staff.
‘We all have the greatest respect for Frank Lampard’s work and the legacy he created at Chelsea. At the same time, I cannot wait to meet my new team and compete in the most exciting league in football. I am grateful to now be part of the Chelsea family – it feels amazing!’
Chelsea Director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘It is never easy to change Head Coach in the middle of the season but we are very happy to secure one of Europe’s best coaches in Thomas Tuchel. There is still much to play for and much to achieve, this season and beyond. We welcome Thomas to the Club.’
Tuchel will replace Chelsea legend Frank Lampard who was sacked on Monday morning.
