Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel hopes his staff will follow the high expectations set by Manchester City and Liverpool. Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard in January.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel believes the Blues will compete for the Premier League title next season with Manchester City.
Tuchel, who replaced Frank Lampard in January, hopes Chelsea will be able to meet City and Liverpool’s high expectations next season.
According to the official club website, Tuchel said ahead of Thursday’s match against Liverpool, “If you read these numbers out loud, it seems not. However, we must not confine our thoughts. We should remember to avoid making excuses.
The number of points indicates the size of the distance. However, it must be the goal to close it as soon as possible. It’s a fine line between debating and already making an excuse for myself and the players. That is something I do not want to do. It’s not in my nature, and if you don’t embrace it from the start, you’ll just drive yourself to the brink. Will we be able to catch City this season? No, it’s not true. However, we will begin the following season with zero points.
This season, City was in trouble, and no one took advantage of it. It has been proven in sports that if you catch the momentum, you can take extraordinary steps, boost your team, and develop. Right now, we’re vying for the top four, which was a huge job when we first arrived, and we’ll be vying for all titles next year.”
