Tuchel: I was not famous for this

Chelsea fans have taken pretty well to Thomas Tuchel. The German won the Premier League in his first season at the club, despite coming midway through the season.

A banner has been created for the German who feels the love of the fans.

Tuchel who had managed PSG and Borussia Dortmund in the past, has admitted that he hasn’t felt loved from fans like this.

“It’s so nice to have this bond with the fans,” Tuchel said.

“I was not famous for that in my last clubs. I don’t know why it’s suddenly like this, but I’m very happy about it.

“This game is a different game with fans, we always said it. It’s a different game. If the stadium is empty, half empty, or full, we need full stadiums, this makes the game exciting, emotional. This creates something you can’t find without them.

“We are doing this for entertainment, for making our fans happy. We are responsible for the spark, energy and we want to provide a level of energy that they can feel it.

“If you go to the stadium you feel this team giving everything, playing as a group of friends, not only just employees. That’s the challenge. Once we do this the fans are happy and they feel it. This is where we want to continue.”
