Chelsea have confirmed that Thomas Tuchel has been given a contract extension, after a successful start at Chelsea upon his appointment in January.

Tuchel was given an initial 18-month deal in January to replace Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge, but after winning the Champions League, the club has deemed it fit to keep him on for two extra years.

Tuchel will now be at the club until 2024, and he has revealed that he’s pleased to have gotten a new contract.

Tuchel said: “I cannot imagine a better occasion for a contract renewal. I am grateful for the experience and very happy to stay part of the Chelsea family.

“There is far more to come and we are looking forward to our next steps with ambition and much anticipation.”
