Fri 04 June 2021 | 12:25

The German coach will work with Chelsea until 2024.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has extended his contract with the club for another two years.

The 47-year-old replaced Frank Lampard at

Chelsea

in January and initially signed an 18-month contract with the club. Tuchel reached the Champions League final with Paris Saint-Germain in the 2019-2020 season, but lost to Bayern in the final and failed to win the trophy. Paris Saint-Germain sacked him last summer, and after the sacking of Frank Lampard, he was replaced by Chelsea, who won the Champions League with the team at the end of the season.

Now, the German coach, in an interview with the Chelsea website, spoke of his happiness after the contract extension. He 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."

"When Thomas joined us in January there was still so much to play for domestically and in Europe. He slotted in seamlessly and immediately became an integral part of the Chelsea family.

"Returning us to the top four in the Premier League was crucial, and we could not be happier with our success in the Champions League which crowned a remarkable season at Chelsea.

"We are obviously extremely pleased therefore to retain Thomas for a further two years, and look forward to more achievements in the coming seasons."
