FOOTBALL – Chelsea: Tuchel talks about reunion with PSG in C1
Chelsea have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday. The Blues coach Thomas Tuchel was asked about the possibility of meeting PSG in the next round.
A Chelsea – PSG for Tuchel in the Champions League?
Sacked by Paris Saint-Germain at the end of December, Thomas Tuchel quickly found a bench. He is now in charge of London’s Chelsea. He has now returned to the bench at Chelsea, and on Wednesday he scored a second successive win with the Blues in the Champions League. The London club’s 2-0 victory over Atletico Madrid has taken them into the quarter-finals of the Champions League. After the match, the German coach was asked about the possibility of meeting PSG in the quarter-finals. The German was not very enthusiastic. “To meet PSG again? I’m not sure [laughs]! They are very strong, I know them well. We have to wait, it’s always a moment of suspense and we can’t change,” the coach told RMC Sport.
Tuchel’s record-breaking debut for the Blues
Thomas Tuchel was appointed Chelsea coach in January, and this was his 13th game in charge of the English club. Unbeaten since his appointment, he has made the best start for a new Blues coach: 9 wins and 4 draws. Until now, Luiz Felipe Scolari held the record of unbeaten record for a new coach. The Brazilian coach had gone 12 games without defeat on his debut in the 2008-2009 season. Since his arrival in London, Frank Lampard’s successor has put the club back on track. The Stamford Bridge resident is 4th in the Premier League and has just qualified for the quarter-finals of the C1. A first since 2014.
