Being a great football manager goes beyond just the tactics and philosophy of the manager, but man-management, mental preparation, psychology and team unity are some other factors that separate the best of managers from the rest.

Thomas Tuchel seems to have only made the right decisions since he became the manager of Chelsea FC.

After the 2-0 victory over Real Madrid, Timo Werner revealed he was pleased with a decision Tuchel made.

According to Werner, Tuchel loves to have the players stay together in the hotel before a game, but before the game against Real Madrid, he made the odd decision for them to stay with their family at home, and Werner believes that it had a good effect on the players.

He told BT Sport: “I know the manager loves it to go to the hotel before the game and have everyone together, but I think for us players, it’s the best thing to sleep at home, be around your family, your normal home.

“It worked the last game and it worked today. That’s a good thing that the manager decided this.”
