Thomas Tuchel replaced Chelsea legend Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss last month.

According to Tuchel, he jumped at the chance of becoming Chelsea boss even though it meant being separated from his family for now.

“Christmas, job-wise, was not the best Christmas I ever had and suddenly it feels right now that we missed the best present under the tree, which took a while to find it and open it,” Tuchel said.

“I never regretted the decision to accept this challenge here. So far it feels absolutely amazing to be a part of the Chelsea family and play a part in this club.

“Privately, it did mean we had to take a very, very quick decision family-wise, that my family stays at the moment in Paris to finish school with the kids and at the moment it isn’t easy – impossible, in fact – to travel for all of us.

“Things are well organised, my kids go to school, but it would be nice if we could be together, but this was the decision and now we have to cope with it. Like many other people.

“But you know, we are still privileged, safe and healthy so I don’t want to complain too much.

“I would like it to be different, but no complaints – we are healthy and we are still together as a family even if now there is a distance between us. Hopefully things will soon get better.”
