According to Chelsea’s assistant coach Zsolt Low, who worked with Thomas Tuchel in his previous job at Paris Saint-Germain, they didn’t expect to find a new club until the summer but couldn’t turn down the opportunity of taking over at Chelsea.
Low said as quoted by Goal: “We thought we would rest for at least half a year and spend time with our family and then possibly prepare for a new club in the summer.
“Life thought differently.
“If it weren’t for Chelsea calling us, we might have preferred to rest. But Chelsea is an exceptional professional challenge, a sensational club with a fantastic set of players in the best league in the world.
“Such an opportunity may not have been possible in the summer, so we took on the task with all the difficulties.”
