Tuchel Makes Managerial History As Chelsea Reach Champions League Final

Tuchel makes managerial history

Thomas Tuchel has become the first manager to reach the European Cup or Champions League final in successive seasons with different clubs.

Chelsea defeated Real Madrid 2-0 on Wednesday in their semi-final second leg, sealing a 3-1 aggregate win and a place in the final alongside Manchester City.

Tuchel led PSG to last year’s Champions League final, seeing his side fall 1-0 to Bayern Munich.

When BT Sport posited that Tuchel must be doing something right to have achieved such a feat, the manager said with a laugh: “Or not because it’s not the same club! It depends who you ask.”

Tuchel added: “I’m very happy that we’ve achieved this. I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to live my life in football and this passion as a profession.

“So grateful to do it on this level and to get to another final, I’m very grateful for that.”
