Chelsea boss has talked about his concerns at the beginning of his arrival.



Thomas Tuchel

says that he had concerns about the length of his deal at first, but he is comfortable with it now. After sacking the Blues legend Frank Lampard, Roman Abramovich chose to hire Thomas Tuchel and offered him an 18-month contract which didn’t seem promising to the German manager at first, according to PSG and Dortmund’s former head coach.

Here is what he told

BT Sport

about his 18-month deal with Chelsea:

“'I have to leave my country, maybe leave my family behind and they are many points behind fourth spot'.

“Maybe we won't make it which is still possible because it's a tough race and it will be easy to sack me again.

“But after just a matter of minutes I took the weight off my shoulders. I thought 'if I'm good, if they like what I'm doing they will make me stay.'

“'If I'm not good, if I don’t have good results they will sack me anyway.' I can have a five-year contract and they could still sack me so why worry about it?

“Am I convinced about myself? Yes. Am I convinced about this club and team? Yes and yes. So why worry?

“From there on I stepped out of the cycle of thinking and I live a bit easier now. I don't worry as much.”
