Confirmed: Tuchel extends Chelsea contract after Champions League win

Tuchel was appointed at Stamford Bridge in January on an 18-month deal and has been rewarded for leading the Blues to their Champions League win in Porto.

The German also guided Chelsea to a top-four finish in the Premier League and they reached the FA Cup Final, where they lost to Leicester at Wembley.

“I cannot imagine a better occasion for a contract renewal,” said Tuchel. “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 added: “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 obviously extremely pleased therefore to retain Thomas for a further two years, and look forward to more achievements in the coming seasons.”
