Thomas Tuchel celebrated the first prestigious victory in the English Premier League with FC Chelsea.
The German team manager fought the blues in the duel of the star trainers at Tottenham Hotspur and Jose Mourinho on Thursday with 1:0 (1:0). Chelsea improved in the table after the third game under Tuchel in sixth place.
“”There is no better result than a win””, Tuchel rejoiced at the “”Sky”” microphone. The first half was good, we found good in our rhythm. In the second passage we had many chances, but they did not take good advantage. There were times when it was difficult, but we got through them well.”
He was very satisfied with his new team,””they all have great attitude””, said the former BVB coach, who had to renounce the German national player Kai Havertz due to injury.
Timo Werner in focus
His DFB colleague Timo Werner, on the other hand, had a leading role: He was followed in the penalty area by Eric Dier, Jorginho transformed the eleventh meter into a winner safely (24.).
Tuchel can now enjoy the announced reward. “”The winner is Jorginho. I’m not a beer guy, I’m not a wine guy. My alcohol consumption is zero. But if we win, I’ll have a gin and tonic,”he said in advance.
The former Chelsea star Michael Ballack dares to mark an era.”Tuchel may be the coach who prints his stamp there for the longer term”, said the former national team captain in an interview with “”Stats Perform News”.
Havertz will also benefit from the collaboration.
