Dubai: Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has agreed a new two-year contract which will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2024.
Chelsea acted swiftly following the German coach’s heroics in securing the Champions League title against Manchester City in Porto.
Tuchel has enjoyed a superb start having taken over from Frank Lampard earlier in the season. He joined in January when the team was struggling and oversaw a rise up the Premier League table to a fourth-place finish.
