Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said now is the time to go for more titles, after winning the UEFA Champions League against Manchester City.
“It is a fantastic achievement. We expected a very strong team and we knew we were going to have to be at a great level to be able to prevail. He had won at lower levels, but he did not know what this feeling was like. Now is the time to celebrate and then go for the next success, for the next title, “said the German at a press conference.
“I don’t know if I’m prepared to talk about specific players. Because everyone has shown a great attitude. We were very brave even at times when it was difficult to get out of the pressure,” he said about the 1-0 win against City.
The German also spoke about the controversial lineup of Pep Guardiola, who left out a defensive midfielder to draw a more offensive lineup.
“I expected Fernandinho to play the truth. He chose a very offensive team, a very technical team. We imagined the rest and we knew that Azpi and Chilwell would have to help our midfielders a lot. It was a very tough game until the end.”
In addition, Tuchel, asked if he had been able to speak with the owner, Roman Abramovic, dropped that he will renew with Chelsea.
“I may have renewed my contract after this game. I have to speak to my agent,” said the German.
