Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has hinted that he would like to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge after enjoying good magic so far.
Tuchel took over Frank Lampard in January and has since seen a change in luck as the club finished among the top four and advanced to the FA Cup final before losing to Leicester City.
The German manager will also have the opportunity to lift the Champions League against Manchester City, and could only become the second Chelsea manager to do so.
Tuchel was given a contract for only a year and a half in January, but the team’s performances could see that the club was offering him a longer job. Chelsea could extend Tuchel’s stay for another two years, with the possibility of a third year towards Telegraph.
The German’s family is expected to move to London ahead of next season, and he admitted that Chelsea currently feel like a “perfect place” for him.
“This is very easy. I’m so happy to be here. I have never felt so good since I was in Mainz and this seems like the perfect place and the perfect moment for me, ”Tuchel said when asked about the contract extension.
“I am so happy to be here, so everything that comes will come. We can’t force things, but, of course, this is my position and this is very clear, “Tuchel said.
Tuchel deserves an extension even if Chelsea do not win the Champions League
The arrival of the German saw Chelsea approach the games differently because he brought more structure with him.
The back-to-back Champions League final as a coach is a good achievement, and Tuchel will hope the team overcomes the final hurdle against Manchester City.
Chelsea should support Tuchel in the summer transfer window regardless of what happens in the final against Manchester City.
The German managed to get the best out of the players from the current Chelsea team, and increased the performances of Kai Havertz and Tim Werner, although their performance in front of the goal did not improve drastically.
With a full preseason and a transfer window under Tuchel, Chelsea could become surprising contenders for the Premier League title next season.
