Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been handed a two-year contract extension at the west London club barely six days after winning the Champions League.
Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge in January, replacing Frank Lampard on an initial 18-months deal with possible extension.
An extension became possible after the 47-year-old delivered the Champions League trophy thanks to a 1-0 victory over Premier League winners Manchester City.
Tuchel also guided Chelsea to a fourth-place finish in the Premier League during the 2020/21 season and reached the FA Cup final, where his side were beaten 1-0 by Leicester City at Wembley.
Speaking about his contract extension, Tuchel told the club’s official website: “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.”
Tuchel was given the marching orders at Paris Saint-Germain on Christmas eve despite seeing the side through a trophy-laden spell and finishing runners up in last season’s Uefa Champions League.
At Chelsea, Tuchel has won 19 of his 30 games in charge so far, losing five times and conceding just 16 goals.
