Chelsea FC’s Manager, Thomas Tuchel, gets contract extension to 2024

Chelsea has announced the extension of the contract of Manager Thomas Tuchel, to 2024. This is as a result of the impressive performance of Tuchel, under whom the club won the Champion League trophy (a second time) for the London-based team last week.

On the official website of Chelsea, it was written: “The Club is very happy to confirm that, following our triumph in the Champions League, Thomas Tuchel’s contract has been extended by two years, as agreed when he joined the Club.

“Our head coach took over the role in January and oversaw a rise up the Premier League table to a fourth-place finish, ensuring our place in the Champions League for 2021/22 even before being crowned its winners this season.

“Chelsea under Tuchel also reached the FA Cup final where a single Leicester City goal defeated us, but silverware was captured two weeks later when Manchester City were beaten by an impressive all-round team display in Porto.”

Chelsea director, Marina Granovskaia, went on to congratulate Tuchel and also express his delight on the development:

“When Thomas joined us in January there was still so much to play for domestically and in Europe. He slotted in seamlessly and immediately became an integral part of the Chelsea family.

“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 Chelsea.

“We are obviously extremely pleased therefore to retain Thomas for a further two years, and look forward to more achievements in the coming seasons.”

Expressing his joy on the extended contract, Manager Tuchel wrote:

“I cannot imagine a better occasion for a contract renewal. 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.”
