According to The Athletic’s Simon Johnson, the Blues have already secured our best signing of the year by appointing Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea boss in January.
Johnson told The Athletic: “Chelsea have already made the best signing they could make by securing Thomas Tuchel as their first-team manager in January.
“Chelsea can now lay claim to having one of the best coaches in the Premier League – and Europe for that matter.
“Pep Guardiola’s trophy haul probably ensures he is regarded as No 1 in English football, while the job Jurgen Klopp has done at Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund puts him in very close contention at the top of the ladder.
“But Tuchel is right up there too. The job he’s done at Stamford Bridge since his arrival has been extraordinary. Winning the Champions League having overseen wins over Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Guardiola’s Manchester City side proved that.”
