Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed his plan for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final.
According to Tuchel, he is aiming to beat Manchester City for the third time this season and he believes it’s absolutely possible.
“It’s always so, so tough to play against [Guardiola’s] teams,” the 47-year-old told UEFA.com.
“I played against his [Bayern] team, and now against his Man City team. I watched his Barcelona team to learn from him and his team about football, how you can defend, how you can attack, [for] years and years.
“He built winning machines, and this is what he [has done] now, here in England. I don’t hesitate to say that Man City and Bayern [have been] the benchmark in Europe this season and last season.
“We are trying to close the gap and the good thing is, in football, you can close gaps in 90 minutes. That is absolutely possible, and that’s what we are [aiming to do] in the final.”
