Chelsea move quickly to secure contract extension for the architect of Champions League final victory

It’s not even been a week since Chelsea secured their second Champions League title, but they’ve moved quickly to secure the services of the architect of that epic win over Manchester City.

The German has been a breath of fresh air since arriving at Stamford Bridge, and with the same group of players that Frank Lampard had, he’s turned them into a lean, mean machine.

Decent going forward and solid at the back, Tuchel’s tactics are on a totally different level from Lampard’s, who appeared to favour the ‘you score three, we’ll score four’ approach.

It’s no wonder then that Roman Abramovich has tied down his manager until 2024.

With the right signings, there’s every reason to believe that the west Londoners will once again be serious challengers for the Premier League title.
