Chelsea have finally confirmed the appointment of Thomas Tuchel as the club’s new manager.
The Blues moved swiftly to bring in the German and former Paris Saint German head coach following the decision to fire Frank Lampard on Monday.
The 47-year-old will be charged with the task of reviving the fortunes of a side sat in ninth in the Premier League table, with Champions League qualification the likely target for the remainder of the season.
Tuchel, who was fired as coach of Paris Saint-Germain in December, has signed an 18-month contract, with the option of a further year in west London.
His predecessor, Lampard, had been handed a three-year contract when the Blues legend was appointed Chelsea boss in the summer of 2019 following a season in charge of Championship side Derby County.
