Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel revealed that he would like to stay until his contract runs out in 2024 but is wary about the history of the club. Tuchel was handed a two-year contract extension as he lead Chelsea to Champions League glory just five months into taking the job. If Tuchel sees out his contract he will become the longest-serving manager under the ownership of Roman Abramovich.
“I think I have a contract until 2024,” Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said. “Let’s stay with this and try to stay as long as this contract says. History tells us that it’s not that easy, but I feel very confident today that I can make it – I don’t want to be anywhere else, this is absolutely sure. I feel very happy, let’s see what happens, but everyone knows you need results, and I’m responsible for creating an atmosphere that gives us the results.”
“He’s our player and he’s doing good, but at the same time it’s only half a season, so he needs to continue to improve and to make his statement at Southampton,” he added about Armando Broja. “We have a reason why they are our players, they have quality and mentality and now they are out there on their own in different environments and clubs and proving themselves. Armando’s getting better and better, he’s a very unique player with unique strengths in his game, he has speed, he’s robust and he’s a goalscorer. First of all, now is not the moment to discuss the summer – it’s the moment for him to stay calm and keep on improving.”
