Thomas Tuchel has said there is “far more to come” from Chelsea under his management after signing his contract extension to June 2024.
“I cannot imagine a better occasion for a contract renewal,” Tuchel told the club’s website. “I am grateful for the experience and very happy to stay part of the Chelsea family. There is far more to come and we are looking forward to our next steps with ambition and much anticipation.”
Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard in January with the club ninth. He also led them to the FA Cup final, which they lost to Leicester.
그만큼 첼시 director Marina Granovskaia said: “Returning us to the top four in the Premier League was crucial, and we could not be happier with our success in the Champions League which crowned a remarkable season at 첼시.
“We are obviously extremely pleased therefore to retain Thomas for a further two years, and look forward to more achievements in the coming seasons.”
Chelsea will trigger an option to extend the 36-year-old defender Thiago Silva’s contract to June 2022.
