Following his appointment as Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel has sent a warning to Chelsea’s London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Tuchel has warned Jose Mourinho that he will be do everything to beat Tottenham next week after previously admitting having a soft spot for our bitter rivals.
He said: “I want to be very honest because we played the Europa League game with Dortmund and Tottenham, and I just explained it.
“When I was young there was no daily match live on the TV, so what I could actually see was one or two minutes every four weeks.
“Suddenly a club like Tottenham Hotspur came across on our sports broadcaster, I heard the name and it sounded like a big adventure and it gave me a big advantage on my friends because they had no idea where the club was.
“I was young, but that was one of my first experiences. I did not even know it was a club in London.
“But now I’m absolutely aware I work for their big rivals, and you can be very, very sure we will do everything to beat them next week!”
Chelsea play away to Tottenham next Thursday.
