Tuchel has opened the door to extending his Chelsea contract as he approaches the final 12 months of his deal despite interest from Bayern Munich.
According to Tuchel, he feels a part of the Chelsea family.
Asked whether he feels he deserves a longer contract after Saturday’s win over Manchester City, Tuchel said: “If I deserve to stay I am super happy to stay and I will try to stay as long as possible. I feel a part of the Chelsea family.
“The club is super professional, we have unbelievable quality of support, amount of support and we have a team which is pleasure to be on the sideline with. It is a pleasure to fight with this team.
“So I don’t care what it says on my contract, I need to deserve to stay longer. If I deserve to stay longer, then I will stay longer.
“This is what I demand from myself. I feel free at the moment, I feel good — I’m in the right place at the right moment.
“Everything will fall into place when it is there and if I want to stay longer I need to deliver week in, week out.”
