Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed the mandate he was given by the club following his appointment as Chelsea boss.

According to Tuchel, the club made it very clear that Chelsea is about results.

“If you sign for Chelsea you sign for the hunger of titles,” said Tuchel. “You sign for being absolutely competitive in every competition you play, I’m totally aware of that.

“But it does not scare me, we have big ambitions. I myself have the biggest ambitions. I’m very excited about the mixture of the team, I’m very excited about the structure of the club, and the first days were amazing.

“And I’m absolutely aware that at some point everybody expects results but honestly, I’m doing that of myself.”

“In the end, the club makes this very clear, Chelsea is about results,” said Tuchel, who operated with similar levels of expectation in his previous job at Paris Saint-Germain.

“I am in a club who’s DNA it is to win and go for trophies. I am here to challenge for every trophy that we play for and it means realistically that this year it is about the Champions League and FA Cup.

“To speak about the Premier League title is not realistic because there are too many teams between us.

“We will just lose focus if we start here but our job is also about relationships with the club and team, to push everyone to the limit.”
