Thomas Tuchel became the 15th manager in Roman Abramovich’s reign as Chelsea owner, as the German was appointed as the new club boss on Tuesday.

Following the axing of Frank Lampard, Tuchel was given a contract of only 18 months with the option of an extension, signifying the lack of trust from the Chelsea owner.

The 47-year-old who was only just sacked from PSG in December, has revealed that he’s not afraid of being sacked by Chelsea.

Tuchel is rather focused on winning and isn’t thinking about getting sacked.

“Maybe nobody expects me to be here long,” said Tuchel.

“Maybe because of the history of coaches and Chelsea. Maybe I will stay long. If I don’t stay long, I don’t stay long.

“I cannot lose my focus. On the highest level — and this is not specific for Chelsea — you don’t have time and I don’t want to talk about time right now because on Sunday there is the next match.”

He went on: “If Chelsea calls and you decide to jump in, you know what you’re in for.

“You sign for the hunger of titles. It’s better to speak it out loud and it’s nothing to be afraid of.

“It does not scare me. We have big ambitions, I do that myself. At some point, everybody expects results. Chelsea is about results.

“Its DNA is to win and go for trophies. I am here to challenge for every trophy and realistically this year it is about the Champions League and FA Cup.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
