Thomas Tuchel named Chelsea head coach


Thomas Tuchel has been confirmed by Chelsea as successor to Frank Lampard as head coach.

The German was confirmed on Tuesday by the club saying he has signed an 18-month contract “with the possibility of an extension”.

The German won back-to-back Ligue 1 titles with Paris Saint-Germain and previously managed Borussia Dortmund. He was recently sacked by PSG where he won back-to-back Ligue 1 titles and reached last season’s Champions League final before being replaced by ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.

He won the DFB-Pokal in 2017 with Dortmund before his spell with PSG, in which the French club narrowly missed out on the top prize in European football when they were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich last summer.
